Art in the Sky

Boston public art

A street artist known as JR pasted this serene image onto the blue glass of Boston’s Hancock Tower. (Yes, I know it’s no longer officially supposed to be called the Hancock Tower, but try to stop me.) The art piece takes perfect advantage of the sometimes calm, sometimes shimmery water-like surface of the building. I got a chance to view it from Boylston Street earlier this week, as the day was approaching the golden hour. What a treat. It’s supposed to be on view there only through October. If you’re in Boston, get out and see it. I found just a little bit about the artist in this article

Another lovely Boston public art piece is coming down after October as well. It’s Janet Echelman’s “As If It Were Already Here” split-rope sculpture, currently suspended over the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Here’s a fun drone’s eye view video that features the sculpture.

Hi there. I’m artist Paula Ogier. In this blog I write about about new works, projects in process, life as a working artist, life in Boston, and inspirations and challenges in growing an art business. I live and work in Boston's South End neighborhood. I'm fond of big cities, architecture, great imaginative spaces, talking to cats, food & drink, gardening, wandering around on foot, binge-watching well written shows, and of course, making art. Artist website: PaulaOgierArt.com. Twitter: Paula Ogier Artworks My studio is in Boston's SoWa Arts District at 450 Harrison Avenue, Studio 203.
