Guest contributor Conor MacDonald explores the evolution of Kenmore Square as a gathering place, a social nexus point, and now, an iconic location for site-specific public art.
The Commonwealth Ave Mall was among Boston’s first planned public spaces. But when construction on the Mall began in 1856, it signaled the very beginning of an urban planning renaissance in the city that lasted through the Gilded Age (1870's - 1900). Now it’s the site of Liz Glynn: Open House, enriching it’s already potent message about access to public space.
Join us July 26 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm for the opening celebration for Liz Glynn: Open House.
