One of the first projects to be implemented through our strategy was this 2012 mural by Os Gemeos. The bold work had a very positive impact, raising the bar for public art in Boston. Read more in the Boston Globe.
In 2013, the site changed to host Remanence: Salt and Light (Part II) by Mathew Ritchie. This site, and the great work of the Greenway, made me fall in love with temporary murals.
Jennifer McGregor and I collaborated on a public art strategy for Boston's new Greenway, the park that replaces the elevated highway that divided the waterfront from the city. The five-year strategy focuses on temporary projects rather than permanent works, enabling the art experience in the park to remain contemporary and visible.
The Conservancy is moving ahead with implementation. Check out their website for more information and artist opportunities. You can also read a copy of the executive summary for Connective Innovative Celebratory.
