Supporting Artistic Process + More Art for Boston
From January through May of 2018, the first Now + There Public Art Accelerator cohort gathered seven local artists together to learn from local experts about the curatorial, technical, and financial support they need to develop new temporary artworks in Boston.
The Accelerator created an on-ramp for early- to mid-career Boston-area artists to successfully participate in the dynamic realm of public art. Accelerator artists built the skills and sensibilities necessary to conceptualize compelling, neighborhood-centric temporary public artworks and received substantial funding to realize their projects. Together we developed a pathway for future success.
Final Accelerator projects will be produced during the summer and fall of 2018 in areas of the City of Boston that don’t currently have contemporary public art, creating more art across the city.
