Art on the Harbor Islands was a multi-sensory discovery of the Boston Harbor Island’s 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, provided inspiration for four 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—presented work that went below the surface and into the past that explored the built environment, the natural landscape, and our connection to it all.
