A feminist approach to creating and facilitating public art helps us flex our empathy muscles by increasing a tolerance for ambiguity and a diversity of perspectives.
Yesterday, we brought copies of Faces of Dudley to share with our friends at the Dudley Branch of the Boston Public Library. Copies are now available for sale on Blurb for $7.25 so everyone can remember that day when a neighborhood came together in pride.
Looking back and ahead, a New Year's greeting from Director Kate Gilbert. In a decade from now when Greater Boston is a must-see destination for public art enthusiasts I believe we’ll look back at 2015 as a pivotal year. 2015: the year public art became an integral part of the re/development of engaging public spaces, the year when artwork selection processes shifted from juried to curated, and the year we learned to balance spectacle and civic engagement.
Great news! JR's Inside Out Project Photobooth truck is returning tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 8, to Boston!
The truck's new location is Back Bay Station. So if you can't make it today, make arrangements to get over tomorrow and don't miss out on "the people's art project".
Have extra time tomorrow and want to earn our eternal gratitude? Sign up to volunteer.
