Public Art to be Installed in Boston Marine Industrial Park

Apr 14, 2011

Over the past few months, the BRA, in coordination with the Boston Art Commission, sought proposals for temporary public artworks to be considered for an 18-month installation to celebrate the innovative and ecological spirit that will define Boston’s Innovation District. These artworks will serve to engage the public and act as gateways for the Boston Marine Industrial Park (BMIP). The BRA board approved the license agreements with the artists at tonight’s meeting. Dozens of artists submitted artwork, invigorating the effort to bring public art to the Marine Industrial Park and advancing the Mayor’s goal of bringing public art to each of the City’s neighborhoods.  All submissions were posted online on the Boston Art Commission’s Facebook page, where comments from the public were invited.  With the recommendations of the selection committee and consideration of time, budget and installation, three pieces were finally selected. Selected artworks: Arch III, Gateway by Ann Jon Materials: wood, steel, pigment Dimensions: 12' H, 9' W, 2' D Site: Summer Street Moonsnails by Marisa Dipaola Materials: found plastics, L.E.D. lights on bent and bolted bicycle parts Dimensions: 2 ½ - 3’ H, 1’ W, 3-4’ D Site: Drydock Park Rock Lobster by Craig Berube-Gray Materials: granite Dimensions: 16” H, 18” W, 72” D Site: Northern Avenue
