By Boston artist, Ross Miller features three vertical stainless steel sculptural beacons, inspired by Boston Harbor navigational buoys, billows of fog, LEDs, and a sound system, are surrounded by recycled granite seawall stones placed in the shape of a boat. Harbor Fog is located in the Wharf District Parks and is motion sensitive to people who walk by, or children playing, all of which activate the unique sculpture, and make it a great place to both play and relax on warm days.
