An interview with Elisa about Slideshow -- what inspired her, what’s new, and what this piece of “analog” art has to do with a technology and innovation festival (hint -- Instagram wasn’t the original photo sharing platform). Read on to get an inside look at Slideshow and join us for the slide talks, starting Thursday October 12.
Here’s to our volunteers! As the volunteer coordinator for Patterned Behavior, I met over thirty hardworking and passionate people whose help was vital in making our project a reality. They painted, primed, greeted, and directed traffic for over two weeks, and everyone who came out brought their own unique perspective and enthusiasm to the site.
The mural itself is a joyful representation of Boston, illustrating our city’s most vibrant self. And, as Silvia says, “it is unapologetically colorful”. Which is one of our favorite things about it (and her). In fact, N+T director Kate Gilbert chose Silvia for this project first and foremost because of her masterful use of color, pattern, depth, and movement.
It is proclaimed: Ann Lewis’ mural, See Her, is complete! Last week we were honored to have Mayor Marty Walsh and the City of Boston proclaim July 18 “See Her Day” in recognition of the project; the women who worked to make it a reality; and the vision of Ann and N+T to bring this piece to the city.
