Neighbors, Nature and Time Play Great Parts in Art by Christopher Frost: Colony and Much More

After two visits in the past month, I hope to make many more in the three seasons ahead before Colony leaves its maple tree on the Minuteman Bikeway. The photos in this post are mine but the links below will lead to more varied and vivid ones, including the installation process. The quotes below also give background about Christopher Frost and will suggest why I have seized the opportunity to share my enthusiasm for his spirited splendid sculpture!

Warming Warning: Welcome Art about Unwelcome Warmth

Installed on Harvard’s Science Center Plaza in October, David Buckley Borden’s artwork asks us to read, look, walk, sit, think and revisit until December 7.
“This educational installation is a co-creation of Harvard Forest Fellow David Buckley Borden and Harvard Forest Senior Ecologist Aaron M Ellison that combines art, environmental design, and science communication to convey global climate-change data and spur action on campus.” quote from description of their project on davidbuckleyborden.com

What do Edgar Allan Poe and Bill Russell Have in Common?

My answer to the title question: Both have statues created by women artists in Boston: Poe by Steff Rocknak and Russell by Ann Hirsch. The dedicated, thorough approach of each artist to her subject links both stories of how their artworks came to be.

Artists Take on Time in Temporary Artworks: Stephanie Cardon with “UNLESS” and Liz Glynn with “Open House”

Here are two more art installations to get to know before they go! Both are projects of Now+There, related to their 2018 theme: Common Home. Both deal with issues of time, change, and public engagement. Yet they are different in scope, scale, and sensory experience.  I plan to revisit and reflect but must now give you valuable links about them without further delay.

Temporary Art by Teresita Fernández Activates Harvard Yard until October 1: Autumn (…Nothing Personal)

Day by day, this space generates staged and spontaneous creative activity. I’m posting now with basic information (see Key Resources below) so that anyone who lives near enough, as I do, can truly be there while it’s still up in September. Photos from events I’ve been to might hint at how they were.

Sensational, Subtle Fog x FLO Includes Five Temporary Installations along the Emerald Necklace

This post identifies what you need to find and/or find out about the five distinct but related fog sculptures now in Boston until October 31, 2018. My photos from visits to three of those sculptures remind me of how much can change from moment to moment and how far my images are from revealing the moving drama of the art. 

Late Spring Look at Artwork on the Bikeway: “Ripple” and “Current”

This is my third post about these two artworks, though I have visited almost monthly and would gladly visit more often as local runners, walkers, and bikers likely do. This post simply offers my recent photos (May 31, June 9, 2018)  with ever-growing appreciation of what trees and artists can do together.
