Call Summary

The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy (“The Conservancy”) seeks an artist or artist team for the creation of a temporary, site-specific, placekeeping artwork in celebration of 2024, the Year of the Dragon. This public artwork will activate Auntie Kay & Uncle Frank Chin Park, part of the contemporary public park in the heart of Boston known as The Greenway. The artwork will be installed in time for the 2024 Lunar New Year celebrations for the Year of the Dragon, no later than January 24, 2024. The artwork will remain on display for a period of one year.

The primary objective of the project is to honor the thriving community of Boston’s Chinatown through the creation of new, contemporary, and site-responsive public artwork. The artwork will be selected by a jury composed of community stakeholders, including Chinatown organizational representatives, artists, and community members, who will help ensure that the Artist’s vision and strategies align with and are responsive to community and neighborhood priorities. As an act of placemaking and placekeeping, the artwork will represent and honor Chinatown’s rich cultural history and cross-generational residents, neighbors, and community.
