As part of the process we’ve engaged six artist teams from the US and the UK to produce site specific proposals for a temporary public artwork on the Greenway.

August 1 – November 25, the Institute of Contemporary Art presented the first solo exhibition in the United States of Brazilian twin brothers Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo. The Rose Kennedy Greenway partnered with the ICA as a site for an accompanying public mural at Dewey Square Park.
Featured the work of internationally acclaimed artists Tom Otterness, John Ruppert and James Surls, and was curated by deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum with generous support from Boston Properties and Atlantic Wharf. The exhibition was on display for a 16-month period ending October 2012 in the Greenway's Fort Point Channel Parks.
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.
