Zone 3 Art Scrim
Public Art installation
Behold, our latest public art installment and two-part series over at Zone 3 in Allston, which shares messages of identity, hope, and inspiration.
ART SCRIM is a temporary outdoor gallery program that highlights local artists by turning construction fencing around Barry’s Corner into a platform for sharing art. It joins other Zone 3 programs like Walls on Western and Art in Print, continuing a commitment to the creative community and energizing the streetscape.
This project builds upon our 5+ years of work with Zone 3, a Harvard-sparked initiative to further activate and energize the Western Ave corridor with public art, community, and creative programming and events. It is part of our larger movement to romanticize the pedestrian experience one construction site at a time!

“Each and None” is a portrait series covering both the fence and jersey barriers below. The concept takes visual inspiration from printmaking and folk art to create images that have layered complexities, allowing viewers to discover more details the longer they look. Each image uses two colors with black to reveal a striking portrait. Each person depicted is someone in the artists’ life that either lives in a diaspora or experiences life as a mixed race person.
Anna Dugan, is a mixed race Filipino American artist based in Salem, MA whose work is heavily influenced by her Filipino culture and the nuanced experiences as a mixed race person.
