Opening Saturday, June 29, HarborArts, Inc. of East Boston presents a summer-long exhibition of temporary outdoor sculpture and installation on the waterfront at the Boston Harbor Shipyard and Marina in East Boston, through September 21.
Curated by Brookline sculptor, videographer, and critic Elizabeth Michelman, OccupyING the Present expands the sculpture park’s collection of twenty-five semi-permanent works with sixteen new site-responsive pieces by Boston area artists. The works transform the materials and forms of Boston Harbor and the neighborhood of East Boston into a dialogue about impermanence, change, and creative thinking.
The opening celebration on Saturday June 29 from 3-8PM will include refreshments, family-oriented sculpture activities, a curator’s talk, and an evening jazz concert by the Joel Press Combo.
Artist tours are offered throughout the summer, with Thursday evening artist-led talks July 11 and August 8 at 6:30 PM, and Saturday tours July 20, August 17, Sept. 14 and 21 at 4:00 PM.
