Art for our Common Home in 2018
Over the next six months Now + There will present eight thought-provoking projects that explore such themes as responsibility and power, memory and recorded history, and the use and enjoyment of our common spaces. First up, Open House by Liz Glynn, debuted July 26 on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall, Kenmore Square. Above photo: Installation view. Cast Concrete. Organized for Boston by Now + There, Open House was commissioned and originally presented in 2017 by Public Art Fund in Central Park, New York in cooperation with the artist and Paula Cooper Gallery.
Building a Public Art City
Public art has the capacity to change hearts and minds. It motivates you. It affirms you. It can challenge your biases and question the status quo. Ultimately, public art can elevate the economic and social health of our communities, and this is why we’re here. Now + There serves artists and the city by creating compelling public art projects that spark change.
Curating, producing and supporting
We curate and support temporary and site-specific projects for, and with, the people of Boston. And along the way we hope to help advance new definitions of public art. We're glad you're here, and hope you'll join us!
Developing a pipeline for more art
We recently launched the Now + There Public Art Accelerator to support artistic process and demystify public art. While our artists are scouting locations, we'd hear from you. Where would you like to see more temporary public art? Why do you say yes to more art?
