At this encounter, WBUR’s “The ARTery” reporter Maria Garcia joins Julia in a discussion, after which Julia will hold “encounters” with those attending. The event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. The program will begin at 6 p.m.
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.+ More... - Less...
