Winter Public Art

FPAC presents Winter Public Art: light-based temporary art  installations along the Fort Point Harborwalk.

Listener By ‪goodgood (Karen Stein Shanley),  ‪New American Public Art (‬Dan Sternof Beyer, Kawandeep Virdee, Bevan Weissman‬), and Matthew Shanley.  Listener is an interactive light installation that responds to the ambient and intentional sounds around it, transforming static space into a dynamic public place.  It is located on the Fort Point Channel Harborwalk between Congress Street and Northern Avenue, outside of the Boston Children’s Museum.

Canopy by Michael Moss and Claudia Ravaschiere.  Located on the Fort Point Channel Harborwalk between Summer and Congress Streets, outside of Channel FItness Canopy is the laser projection, Canopy, that creates a dimensional, impressionistic canopy with myriad points of green light layered over a cloudscape. Using holographic technology, the artists create an unexpected experience on the public walkway along the Fort Point Channel.
