Catch Julia outside Taste Cafe at 4 p.m. or hear her talk on “People, Places and the Power of Art” at 8:15 p.m., a presentation investigating how social engagement, democratic means of data collection, and wild color can transform places and ignite new connections in community.

This will follow MFA’s The City Talks at 7 p.m. (Registration required for the talk.) Museum entry will be free from 4 p.m. to close.

Pathways to Freedom is a JArts public art project by internationally-acclaimed social sculptor Julia Vogl that will be installed on the Boston Common in April. During March and early April, Julia will hold a series of public “encounters” to provide material for the project.

Julia’s artwork will reflect the hundreds of conversations she will have in the Greater Boston area, asking people from all backgrounds about their journeys to freedom.

Drawing inspiration from these stories, and the symbolism within a Passover seder, Julia will create a larger than life visual representation around the Boston Common Parkman Bandstand. The installation will be on display from April 25 to May 2, 2018, during Boston Art Week (beginning April 27). To be part of this project, join us for an encounter with Julia. She will be available at events across the region from March 20 to April 8.

Find Julia at any of these locations to visit her cart, answer questions on the themes of immigration and freedom, create an individual Pathways button to take home and help create the final artwork.
