Now. There. Let's make some art!
Now and There is bringing together unique artists with unique spaces to create thought-provoking public art in Greater Boston. We're building on our 30-year history as UrbanArts to create temporary and site specific projects for, and with, the community. We're glad you're here!
How have the words you spoke at Public Trust with Paul Ramirez Jonas taken up residence in your life? Reflections one month out and an invitation to share your story about how making a promise, and making it public, has inspired you to take action and live more bravely. (Plus win a gift certificate to get your promise framed!)
Every promise is as important as the individual who made it. We've seen over 900 people step up to the table, sit down, and create a promise, and stand in front of the billboard, feeling proud or liberated or possibly a little scared. Here are a few promises that really made us think, This is why we're here.
Leah Triplett Harrington, editor of Big Red & Shiny, explores how art and time-based work can be recorded or documented in this final essay in our four-part collaboration with Big, Red & Shiny and Alter Projects.
Many people coming to make promises at Public Trust have found out about the project through local media. For your reading and viewing pleasure, here's a wrapup of some of the press coverage of Public Trust throughout Greater Boston.
Malcolm Gay, Arts Reporter for The Boston Globe, sat down with artist Paul Ramirez Jonas and N+T Director Kate Gilbert for a look inside Public Trust.
We serve up art that fosters questions and enlivens our communities. Our goal is to be a voice in the conversation about Boston's identity. Who are we as Bostonians? What do we value? And how is all that represented in our public art?
We put our artists' visions first. We search out artists whose values matches our own and those of our community. We then help them make the best public art they can. And along the way we hope to help advance new definitions of public art.
