Janel Echelman Aerial Sculpture

Artist: Janet Echelman

Neighborhood: Downtown

Location: Dewey Square  


Dewey Square
United States


Time Frame: Friday, May 1, 2015 - Saturday, October 31, 2015


A monumental aerial sculpture by world-reknowned artist Janet Echelman will float over Boston's Greenway from May through October 2015. The ultra-lightweight artwork (made from fibers 15 times stronger than steel), will be an original design inspired by the ongoing transformation of Boston's waterfront since the Big Dig put the highway underground, creating the mile-and-a-half greenway. Echelman's artwork will be the centerpiece for a series of free public events on the Greenway. Events will reange from music and dance performances to family friendly days and block parties.
