Downtown Boston Public Art Tour

Posted by Susie Callahan on Mon, Aug 24, 2015

"Explore the fabulous public art -- both city-sanctioned and graffiti -- during this walking tour through downtown Boston. The city is home to several museums, but some of the best art in town can be found right on the street, from magnificent murals to sculpture, guerrilla painting and Boston's PaintBox program, which commissions artists to turn utility boxes into sidewalk installations. This walking tour will take you through parts of the Downtown Crossing and Chinatown neighborhoods and over toward the South End and Theater District where you will see a terrific array of public art. 


The Downtown Boston Art Walking Tour includes murals, PaintBox projects and more. The tour is approximately 2.5 hours and includes less than a mile of walking. "

Need an idea on what to do on a rainy summer day? Why not get some culture and head to one of these always FREE museums, provided by Thrillist: 

 

1. Museum of Bad Art | Davis Square

"Free with admission to any film or theatre event at the Somerville Theater.
It’s exactly what it sounds like."

2. Boston Athenæum | Beacon Hill

"The first floor and exhibition galleries are free to the public.
Tucked away in this gorgeous membership library are rare paintings, maps, photographs, and, of course, books -- even one bound from the skin of a man whose dying wish was to literally BE a book."

3. The Museum of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts | Faneuil Hall

"Intrude" at The Lawn On D

Posted by Susie Callahan on Sat, Jul 11, 2015

 

"As the latest temporary outdoor installation to be part of the D Street ArtLAB WonderLAND exhibit, Intrude features five giant illuminated white inflatable rabbits standing on The Lawn. The two story high glowing rabbits will take over the Lawn for several days, giving us the feeling of being very, very small! The accompanying light installation will evoke a sense of wonderment and imagery from childhood. 

Intrude was created in 2014 for Vivid Festival of Light in Sydney by artist Amanda Parer and has since traveled to festivals across the globe including stops in England, Belgium, Australia, France, Canada, Scotland, Denmark and Italy. "

>> Time: The Intrude exhibit will be up for all to experience during normal Lawn on D hours 

>> Eat & Drink: The D Street Grille, The Tent bar and rotating food trucks per the daily schedule
