Aerial Sculpture to Make its Debut on The Greenway

The Rose Kennedy Greenway is best known for bringing some greenery to Downtown Boston at the site of the former Big Dig. Lately The Greenway has become, in addition to a public green space, one of Boston’s most notable locations for public art.

In the past The Greenway has been home to memorable murals and captivating light displays, but starting this May The Greenway will be taking it’s public art installations to new heights.

Local artist Janet Echelman has had her sculptural work displayed in cities across the globe, from Kyoto, to Sydney, to Seattle. Boston is fortunate enough to be next on Echelman’s list.

Echelman’s installation will be suspended 600 feet in the air over the Rose Kennedy Greenway and will pay homage to the neighborhood’s past. The sculpture will feature 3 voids to represent the 3 mountains that once stood in the City of Boston along with 6 colored bands to represent the 6 lanes of traffic that sat in the exact space The Greenway occupies prior to the Big Dig.

Installation begins Sunday, May 3rd, the aerial sculpture will be on display until October 2015.
