Four new projects respond to the rich terrain of the Boston Harbor Islands

Art on the Harbor Islands is a multi-sensory discovery of the Boston Harbor Islands' remarkable resources—water and sky, sand and city, historic sites and new trails, all just a ferry ride from the heart of Boston. This national park area, home to beaches, marinas, walking trails, picnic sites, and wildlife, provides inspiration for four new contemporary art projects. Leading artists and architects who examine our relationship to the spaces around us-whether abandoned buildings, progressive design, or the natural world-present work that goes below the surface and into the past, exploring the built environment, the natural landscape, and our connection to it all.

There is no admission fee for Art on the Harbor Islands, but visitors must arrange their own travel to the islands. For more information, go to Visiting the Boston Harbor Islands.


Art on the Harbor Islands is supported in part by the Nimoy Foundation and the LEF Foundation. The ICA is grateful to the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership for its invaluable support and assistance, with special thanks to the Island Alliance, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, and the City of Boston.
