We all desire to be understood and recognized. N+T’s Kate Gilbert reflects on the pilot year of our Public Art Accelerator program and how the artists’ empathy and vision helped shaped the program for 2019.
Public art cannot be finished, it can only be prepared.
“On a hot Monday outside the Grove Hall branch of the Boston Public Library, Roxbury artist Ekua Holmes watered a dry garden bed. Inside the planter were seedlings sown in early June. Barely visible, tiny green petals were the beginnings of her public art project.”
Today, we’re excited to announce the Now + There Public Art Accelerator, which will serve local artists with the curatorial, technical and financial support they need to develop new temporary artworks in Boston in 2018.
