Projections is a forum for presenting different video and photo works by national, and regional artists. Each month from March – May videos will be presented in the storefront windows of 4 retail spaces along Western Ave in North Allston-Brighton. Conceptually Projections will perform a modern form of street art, one that introduces light, movement and color after dusk.
The installation is an early piece in a long-term Harvard University-funded initiative to explore how public art can activate Western Avenue. In addition to Harvard-owned spaces, Projections videos will be installed in retail storefronts at the Continuum property and Charlesview Community apartment buildings on Western Ave.
Kicking off March 14th, 2016 at dusk.
Program schedule: Sunset to Sunrise daily.
March 31st join us for a stroll down Western ave for a viewing with the artists, curators and project partners.
5:30-8pm Refreshments will be provided.
