Wednesday, August 8, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm and 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm – Os Gemeos Public Mural Celebration
This August the ICA presents the first solo exhibition in the United States of Brazilian twin brothers Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo. The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy is excited to partner with the ICA as a site for an accompanying public mural. The 70′ x 70′ temporary mural is in process and will be displayed in Dewey Square Park on the Air Intake Structure located between Summer and Congress Streets.
Best known as Os Gemeos (pronounced “ose zhe’-mee-ose”, meaning “the twins”), the two artists started painting the mural Wednesday, July 25 and plan to complete the artwork by Friday, August 3. We invite you to watch as this giant mural takes shape! The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy will host an opening event in celebration of the mural on Wednesday, August , with activities on Dewey Square lawn including art projects for the kids, music and cuisine all inspired by the Brazilian twins’ mural. An evening after party will follow. The Os Gemeos mural on the Greenway is made possible by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, the Boston Art Commission and the City of Boston.
