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. 

A Radiant Painting Generates Sixth Mural for Greenway Wall

“Carving Out Fresh Options,” Diptych Painting by Shara Hughes Leads Up to a Monumental Mural on the Rose Kennedy Greenway
 
 
The mural was scaled up about twelve times from the original painting, but also cropped and shaped to fit the curving, choppy features of the Greenway Wall (one side of the air intake structure building).

The diptych (two-part) oil painting will be on view at deCordova in the museum through May 2019, while the mural is up on the Greenway Wall in Dewey Square Park, Boston.

Short Walk with Long View of Art on Walls in Central Square

My plan to focus on murals for the summer led me to revisit three familiar ones in nearby Central Square, Cambridge: David Fichter’s “Potluck” and Daniel Galvez’s “Crossroads” and “Crosswinds.” Just in the short walk among those three, I became aware of five more wall-based art sites I’d want to share on Art Outdoors.

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.

Art and Time on the Greenway: Year of the Dog, We the People II, Spaces of Hope, Balancing Act I and II

This final Friday in April, Greenway Art Ambassadors will lead a one-hour tour of phenomenal public art. The tour includes four engaging works of art, each within minutes of the next. All four are temporary; all four will likely be gone by next April, though new temporary art will take their places.
These current four have given me such valued visits, I’m hoping for still more time with each. I’m posting now to alert you to the tour before it’s over and to give basic background about the artists, their art and my appreciation of their time.
