Time lapse: Matthew Ritchie Mural in Dewey Square, Boston

Conceptually and visually tied to Ritchie’s multidisciplinary, 18-month residency, the mural’s diagrammatic imagery draws inspiration from Boston’s history and waterfront location. Featuring dark lines atop a pale background, the mural, installed on the façade of the ventilation building on Dewey Square on the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway, brings the dynamic history of abstract painting into daily public life in Boston.
