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 Boston-based digital artist Paula Ogier. In this blog I write about about my art new works, projects in process, life in Boston, inspirations, ideas, and creative challenges. I live and work in Boston's South End neighborhood, in the enclave known as the SoWa Art + Design district. I'm fond of big cities, architecture, great imaginative spaces, food & drink, gardening, wandering around the city on foot, binge-watching well written shows, talking to cats, and of course, making and experiencing art. Artist website: PaulaOgierArt.com. Twitter: Paula Ogier Artworks My studio is at 450 Harrison Avenue, Studio 203.
