On Thursday, March 7, from 6 – 7 at Dewey Park Square (between Summer Street and Congress Street), join the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy for the opening of Urban Planning. An after party reception will be held at Good Life from 7 – 9.
Re-imagine the communities that existed in the 1940’s and 50’s prior to an era of modernization that included the Central Artery construction, which would eventually evolve into the Big Dig and the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway. Join Lumen Collective in re-tracing the Greenway using LED rope lights to plot the buildings that formerly stood on the square. The site-specific installation will feature a collage of sounds from the businesses and movements that once occupied the space. Visitors are invited to explore highlighted sections of Dewey Square Park and interact with a guided audio tour and physical map. Through an illuminated recreation of the site, the work allows viewers to re-consider the roles of public and private space in modern day urban planning.
