The temporary exhibit, titled “Wandering Sheep,” at the Red Gate in Chinatown Park (corner of Essex St and Surface Road) This is the first of a series of installations based on the Chinese Zodiac calendar hosted by the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy. “In paying tribute to the past and to the present, each year a call to artists will be held to present new contemporary artwork representative of that year’s Zodiac Animal,” said Lucas Cowan, Public Art Curator for the Greenway.

This installation features a small flock of ten sheep on various platforms around Chinatown Gateway Park. Constructed of molded, handmade paper, the sculpture will be the third in Oh’s sheep series, which the Brooklyn-based artist has previously exhibited at the Dallas Art Fair and in New York’s Times Square.
