Curated by AIGA Boston in collaboration with WS Development and FPAC

Much like the neighborhoods it resides in, public art transforms us as it brings new life and perspective to the everyday. Activated by the Seaport and Fort Point neighborhoods, our second Open Air Gallery is a continued museum experience unlike any other. Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, this public art walk is transformed by the sky-high vibrancy of the Seaport and the artistic epicenter of Fort Point. The exhibited artworks create a dialogue that makes us question our environment as it is and encourages us to be catalysts for change as we move into the new normal. As you explore, we challenge you to not only view and appreciate the artworks from your own perspective but to immerse yourself in the lens of each piece.
