Year of the Dog Art Installation in Chinatown Park

John F Fitzgerald Surface Rd., Boston, MA

Year of the Dog is the fourth piece in a curation of sculptural and mixed-media installations based on the twelve years of the Chinese Zodiac. With the aim of celebrating both past and present, each year a new artwork has been temporarily installed in the space in front of the Essex Street Gate in The Greenway’s Chinatown Park.

The installation’s goal is to unite the history, culture, and traditions of the Chinese New Year and the Chinatown community with the ideas and expressions of contemporary artists. Past zodiac curations include the 3D printer Make and Take (2017) by Chris Templeman for Year of the Rooster, the 12-foot Monkey See (2016) sculpture by Don Kennell and the paper-mache Wandering Sheep (2015) by Kyu Seok Oh. Wandering Sheep was recognized by Americans for the Arts’ Public Art Network as one of the best installations in the country in 2016.

This installation will run from February 15th -September 1st.
