last year, I found bunch of colorful cow in all over the Boston from south station to east Boston harbor. These Arts figures are temporary or not, I like the impact of the installation outside. since all arts get out of the limitations of museum sizes, rules, etc
I am a big fun of Setouchi international Art Triennale. It is an art festival held in every 3 years on the islands and coastal cities in Seto Sea of Japan . That is huge project to show art installations out of the museum box. Arts were placed in some rural island old house, in the forest, some random building.
Seeing arts Outside is totally different experience from seeing the art quietly in the museum. It might be the great background of the view, it might be the mood of the outside air.
I enjoyed Biwako biennale which held in every 2years around the Lake Biwa. I like Quebec winter arts installation too.
now in Boston!
The winter active arts started this January 15 to April 17.
Free and open to public area. the art installation location map is this.
which is great! Which might collect more variation of comments from Art fun or non Art fun. Especially in old historical city like Boston, some people afraid of jammed the iconic landscape with new stuff.
but definitely these arts gave strong impacts to people walking by Boston. The impact of Boston is alive.
Most of my friends in Japan imagine Boston is the place there are bunch of university and tech company. But Boston has lots to see, not only the university village!
