A new collaborative projection mapping project led by Australian artist Wendy Yu that will bring public art to the side of the iconic Federal Reserve Bank of Boston building at 600 Atlantic Ave., adjacent to Dewey Square on The Greenway. Created in collaboration with Cambridge-based street dance organization The Flavor Continues and Boston-based Illuminus, this large-scale video-based artwork will be projected on the building’s northern exterior wall and will be on view every evening beginning October 25, 2022, through November 29, 2022.
A 15-minute video will appear on the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston building and loop continuously from dusk to 10p each evening through November 30, 2022.
