    The Conservancy welcomes to Boston and Brookline Fujiko Nakaya’s first extended citywide exhibition of multiple “fog sculptures,” marking her five decade career with works at five sites along the historic urban parks that link more than a dozen neighborhoods, and provide a natural, recreational and cultural conduit for the community. Created in response to the landmarked waterways and landscapes designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (FLO), Nakaya’s “climate responsive” shape-shifting, pure water forms invite visitors to immerse themselves in the art, experience nature anew, and appreciate the vital role of the Emerald Necklace in our city’s history, present, and future.

    Organized by the Conservancy with curator Jen Mergel, this FREE public art presentation is on view every day, hourly from dawn to dusk, from August 11 through October 31 at these locations.

    Nakaya calls fog “the most generous medium” and has collaborated for decades with artists, musicians, designers and more to transform her fog sculptures to “fog performances.”

    The Conservancy welcomes to Boston and Brookline Fujiko Nakaya’s first extended citywide exhibition of multiple “fog sculptures,” marking her five decade career with works at five sites along the historic urban parks that link more than a dozen neighborhoods, and provide a natural, recreational and cultural conduit for the community. Created in response to the landmarked waterways and landscapes designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (FLO), Nakaya’s “climate responsive” shape-shifting, pure water forms invite visitors to immerse themselves in the art, experience nature anew, and appreciate the vital role of the Emerald Necklace in our city’s history, present, and future.

    Organized by the Conservancy with curator Jen Mergel, this FREE public art presentation is on view every day, hourly from dawn to dusk, from August 11 through October 31 at these locations.

    Nakaya calls fog “the most generous medium” and has collaborated for decades with artists, musicians, designers and more to transform her fog sculptures to “fog performances.”

    The Conservancy welcomes to Boston and Brookline Fujiko Nakaya’s first extended citywide exhibition of multiple “fog sculptures,” marking her five decade career with works at five sites along the historic urban parks that link more than a dozen neighborhoods, and provide a natural, recreational and cultural conduit for the community. Created in response to the landmarked waterways and landscapes designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (FLO), Nakaya’s “climate responsive” shape-shifting, pure water forms invite visitors to immerse themselves in the art, experience nature anew, and appreciate the vital role of the Emerald Necklace in our city’s history, present, and future.

    Organized by the Conservancy with curator Jen Mergel, this FREE public art presentation is on view every day, hourly from dawn to dusk, from August 11 through October 31 at these locations.

    Nakaya calls fog “the most generous medium” and has collaborated for decades with artists, musicians, designers and more to transform her fog sculptures to “fog performances.”

  • Fog x FLO: Fujiko Nakaya on the Emerald Necklace

    August 11, 2018 - October 31, 2018 @ 
    Emerald Necklace, Boston, MA 02130, USA

    The Conservancy welcomes to Boston and Brookline Fujiko Nakaya’s first extended citywide exhibition of multiple “fog sculptures,” marking her five decade career with works at five sites along the historic urban parks that link more than a dozen neighborhoods, and provide a natural, recreational and cultural conduit for the community. Created in response to the landmarked waterways and landscapes designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (FLO), Nakaya’s “climate responsive” shape-shifting, pure water forms invite visitors to immerse themselves in the art, experience nature anew, and appreciate the vital role of the Emerald Necklace in our city’s history, present, and future.

    Organized by the Conservancy with curator Jen Mergel, this FREE public art presentation is on view every day, hourly from dawn to dusk, from August 11 through October 31 at these locations.

    Nakaya calls fog “the most generous medium” and has collaborated for decades with artists, musicians, designers and more to transform her fog sculptures to “fog performances.”
