The Hub's Public Art: Occupy Boston, Carp, Minutemen of Steel

View as Map

In a wizened locale like the Hub, with history as long as the wait for an uncrowded Green Line at rush hour, public art abounds, mostly in the form of monuments to legendary leaders and earth-rattling events. But there's other stuff. There is.

There are paint boxes about the city that qualify as genuine art by genuine artists (betcha you don't even notice them?). There are also installations that make you think, teaming the artist's verve with the environment immediately around his or her creation. Finally, there is Occupy Boston, at this point the most famous of the Occupy movements still going nationwide. In our walking tour of the breadth of the Hub's public art, it is the only entry under performance art.

The rest arrived starting after the Civil War and up to last year. Tell us what you think; suggest some more; it's a work in progress.
