"We are excited to have these artists-in-residence on board to help us enhance and integrate our cultural capital into our core city services, for the benefit of all of Boston's residents."  

- Mayor Walsh

"MassArt is excited to partner with the City of Boston on the Boston AIR initiative. We are proud of our unique heritage as the only freestanding public college of art and design in the country. Our collaboration with Boston AIR offers us the opportunity to demonstrate the power of art and design in many spheres of public life."

- Ken Strickland, Interim President of MassArt

Last fall, ten local artists worked alongside representatives from twelve City of Boston departments to generate ideas for integrating art and creative thinking into city government.  The artists and City liaisons attended lectures and workshops co-organized by MassArt, the Boston Art Commission, and the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics. Artists shadowed City liaisons to learn about day-to-day operations, challenges, and opportunities.  They built relationships, exchanged ideas, and began to explore possibilities for project proposals.  Three artists' proposals will be chosen for further development, and artists will be awarded $20,000 stipends for six-month residencies within a city department to develop creative approaches that can be incorporated into the work of the City.

Join us on January 23rd for a welcome by Julie Burros, Chief of Arts and Culture, presentations by all ten Boston AIR artists, and a question and answer session!

Tuesday, October 27, 2015 Mayor Walsh Announces Selection of 11 Artist for Boston's Artist-In-Residence Program

BOSTON - Friday, October 23, 2015 - The Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture and the Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt) today announced the selection of 11 artists for the City of Boston's first artist-in-residence program, Boston AIR. 

"Boston AIR highlights the City's dedication to finding new ways to incorporate innovative ideas and creative thinking into our work," said Mayor Walsh. "We are excited to have these artists-in-residence on board to help us enhance and integrate our cultural capital into our core city services, for the benefit of all of Boston's residents." 

The City received over 100 submissions from Boston-area artists in response to a Request for Qualifications. A jury of seven arts professionals, as well as MassArt and City representatives, made their selection in order to create a cohort of artists with a mix of artistic disciplines and experiences, as well as evidence of work in socially engaged practices who demonstrated potential, and who have a connection to the City of Boston. 

The artists will expand their own civic and social practice, alongside a group of liaisons from city agencies, including: Public Works, Property and Construction Management, Parks and Recreation, Veterans' Services, Commission for Persons with Disabilities, Education, Policy, Neighborhood Development, Women's Advancement, Elderly Commission, and the Boston Police Department. 

"Boston AIR is one of the first new programs we are launching as part of Boston Creates," said Julie Burros, Chief of Arts and Culture. "It exemplifies how partnerships and cross-sector collaborations can be incubated within the government." 

Both the artists and City liaisons will attend master workshops and lectures, where they will build partnerships, exchange ideas, and ultimately co-design project proposals. Artists will receive $1,000 stipends for capacity development and support as they work with a City Hall liaison to co-design proposals to work with a city department. Three proposals will be chosen for further development, and artists will be awarded $20,000 stipends for six-month residencies within a city department to develop creative approaches that can be incorporated into the work of the city.   "MassArt is excited to partner with the City of Boston on the Boston AIR initiative," said Ken Stickland, Interim President of MassArt. "We are proud of our unique heritage as the only freestanding public college of art and design in the country. Our collaboration with Boston AIR offers us the opportunity to demonstrate the power of art and design in many spheres of public life." 

The artist cohort represents a wide variety of disciplines, including dance, film, street art, and social engagement. Below are the selected artists:

Peter DiMuro - Performance artist, Dance

Rashin Fahandej - Visual artist, Film

Pat Falco - Visual artist, Illustration

L'Merchie Frazier - Visual artist, Textiles

Georgie Friedman - Visual artist, Film, and Photography

Shaw Pong Liu - Performance artist, Music, and Social Engagement

Roberto Mighty - Visual artist, Film

Caleb Neelon - Visual artist, Murals

Melissa Nussbaum Freeman - Performance artist, Theater

Liz Nofziger - Visual artist, Mixed Media

Juan Obando - Visual artist, Time-based Media

The Boston AIR project is funded in part by an Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The Our Town grant program supports creative placemaking projects that help transform communities into lively, beautiful, and resilient places with the arts at their core. Since the program's inception in 2011 and including these projects, NEA has awarded 325 Our Town grants totaling nearly $26 million. 

"The City of Boston demonstrates the best in creative community development and whose work will have a valuable impact on its community," said NEA Chairwoman Jane Chu. "Through Our Town funding, arts organizations continue to spark vitality that support neighborhoods and public spaces, enhancing a sense of place for residents and visitors alike." 

"The Our Town project is another step in the City of Boston's leadership in arts policy," said NEA Director of Design Programs Jason Schupbach. "It's a fantastic example of putting artists at the center of government innovation, and the NEA is excited to see where it leads." 

About Boston Creates Boston Creates is the City's cultural planning process. When completed, the plan will identify priorities and strategies for how to strengthen the city by leveraging and growing the creative capital of its residents, communities, and organizations.

Friday, September 4, 2015 Proposals for the Kip Tiernan Memorial

Finalists Ceruzzi & MurphyDaniel Clayman, and Beth Galston presented their proposals for the Kip Tiernan Memorial on Wednesday, September 2, 2015. Their abbreviated proposals can be seen below. Based on these proposals, one artist/ team will be chosen to develop their design for the site on Dartmouth Street. Community involvement is vital to the creation of successful public art, and we value your feedback. If you have any comments that you would like to communicate to the selection committee about the deigns below, please email us at art@publicartboston.com.

A Garden for Kip Tiernan, proposal by Beth Galston,

in collaboration with Bartek Konieczny

 

 

 

 

About the project:

The non-profit organization Rosie’s Place, in coordination with the Boston Art Commission, will be reviewing three proposals for a permanent commemorative installation at Dartmouth Street, between Newbury Street and Public Alley 440 in Boston, MA. The winning proposal will feature a site-specific piece of permanent public art that commemorates the life and work of Rosie’s Place founder Kip Tiernan. This is a particularly important commission as it will be one of the few works of public art in Boston dedicated to a woman and the only memorial specifically dedicated to an advocate for homeless people.

Ms. Tiernan’s goal was to transform society, together. While the overall objective of this competition is to commemorate Kip Tiernan, the winning proposal will also successfully address the theme of engagement. In In her book Urban Meditations, written with Fran Froehlich, Ms. Tiernan repeatedly states that we are accountable to, and for, each other, and that only in unity and solidarity, based on respect for the individual and the common good, will it be possible to achieve the solutions that are needed. Her memorial will create a compelling call to “endeavor to act justly,” in Ms. Tiernan’s words. Guiding principles for the project are elegance, sophistication, humility, empowerment, humor, respect, and dignity.

Wednesday, July 1, 2015 ANNOUNCEMENT OF THREE FINALISTS FOR PIER 4 CIVIC CULTURAL SPACE

WHEN: July 6th at 6PM

WHERE: District Hall 75 Northern Ave, Boston 

WHAT: A public presentation by the three finalists for Pier 4 Civic Cultural Space

WHO: The three finalists are--

Celebrity Series of Boston
Steinway Society of Massachusetts
The Society of Arts and Crafts

 

PROJECT BACKGROUND:

UDR, Incorporated, the owner of 100 Pier 4 Boulevard in South Boston in conjunction with the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) is pleased to announce three finalists in the solicitation for qualified civic and cultural users to occupy and program interior and exterior space located at 100 Pier 4 Boulevard. The City of Boston’s long-standing planning objectives for the South Boston Waterfront District include a broad mix of uses tied together with an inviting pedestrian scale including continuous public access along the waterfront on the Harborwalk system. The mix of uses include commercial, residential, hotel, retail, open space and civic development. The waterfront and Harborwalk are to be enriched by parks, overlooks, civic uses and cultural facilities.

 

The call for civic and cultural facilities was underscored through the approval of the South Boston Waterfront Municipal Harbor Plan. Pursuant to that plan, 127,000 sf of new civic uses along the South Boston waterfront were authorized to balance the scale of new private development along the water’s edge. The assemblage of open space and new civic and cultural facilities are the kind of special public destinations that will help transform the South Boston waterfront into a vibrant and popular year-round  public destination. The South Boston waterfront is evolving into a strong civic and cultural district with facilities located both along the water’s edge and within the neighborhood. These destinations include the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Artists for Humanity, Midway Studios, Fort Point Artists community, Boston Children’s Museum, Boston Tea Party Museum, Moakley Federal Courthouse and the Institute for Contemporary Art.

 

This past April UDR, Inc. in conjunction with the BRA advertised a Request for Interest for 20,000 square feet of interior and exterior civic cultural space located at 100 Pier 4 Boulevard.  100 Pier 4 Boulevard is a recently completed residential building with388 apartment homes and ground floor retail space in a 21-story tower. The location of the civic and cultural space is well suited as an addition to the network of civic and cultural facilities in the area. The Pier 4 civic and cultural space is on the Harborwalk along the cove between Pier 4 and the World Trade Center, and also on the intersections of East Service Road, Seaport Boulevard and Northern Avenue, three roadways that play an important role in access to the waterfront. The objective of this process was to attract letters of interest from Boston-based qualified civic and cultural operators to lease the designated civic and cultural space.  Activation of the subject civic and cultural space will depend upon the identification of an appropriate civic and cultural space user acceptable to the UDR, Inc., BRA and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP).
