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!
Five artists, curators and instigators answer the question: "Who is your practice for?" and their answers are as complex and generous as their work. With Che Anderson, Jennie Carlise, William Chambers, Elisa Hamilton, and Lori Lobenstine.
From loving more to being champions, children gave us their promises during a Public Trust preview at Summer Paint Nights with Center for Art and Community Partnerships' (CACP) spark! ArtMobile and Project R.I.G.H.T.
Paul Ramirez Jonas' ambitious three-location interactive project Public Trust is an artwork by and for people–and it takes many to bring this project together.
This first post in a four-part series entitled Art in Service, a collaboration between N+T and Big, Red & Shiny, explores the definitions, challenges and modes of exchange in socially engaged art practices.
N+T Director Kate Gilbert shares her experience at Christo’s latest work, The Floating Piers, in this guest post.
"We are all there to walk on new land, to experience a fantasy like walking on the ceiling that we’ve envisioned in our youth or during a dreamy state. With collars of orange glowing under our necks, we walk together."
It's been a long time coming, and we've been dropping all kinds of hints, so we're excited to finally, officially, spill the beans! N+T is pleased to present Public Trust, a free interactive artwork commissioned by Brooklyn artist Paul Ramirez Jonas coming to Boston August 27-September 17.
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.
