Building a Public Art City
Our 2019 “New Codes” season includes: Breathe Life 3 by local street artist and muralist Rob “Problak” Gibbs in Lower Roxbury; Growth Rings, by prolific minimalist sculptor Oscar Tuazon along the waterfront at Central Wharf Park; and Augment by internationally-acclaimed artist Nick Cave, our biggest and most ambitious commission to date, opening August 8 at the Cyclorama at Boston Center for the Arts and taking joy to the streets with a dedicated art-parade September 14.
See it all
Public art has the capacity to change hearts and minds. It motivates us. It affirms us. It can challenge our 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 public art projects that spark change. This year we’re curating and producing three major works for Boston as well as building the pipeline for more public art through our Public Art Accelerator program. Find your way to current N+T projects with the yellow pins on the map below. See where we’ve been with past project by looking at the charcoal pins.
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?
