Joy++

Augment by internationally-acclaimed artist Nick Cave is a singular artwork, an exuberant social experience, and a call for Boston to come together in public and cultivate joy across the city. Created as an open question “what brings you joy?” this multi-faceted project asks us to reflect on the power of the individual versus the collective and on the difference between happiness and joy as a means to confront a time fraught with division. The inflatable sculpture and community created building wrap will be on view at 555 Columbia Rd. in Dorchester’s Upham’s Corner neighborhood from September 25, 2019 through April 2020.
