public art > Starry Night I

Installation by Lisa Greenfield and Daniel J. van Ackere
Location: A Street under Summer Street, Boston, MA
Duration: December 20, 2009 - Dec 31, 2010

Starry Night will create the illusion of being under a starry sky as you walk under the Summer Street overpass on A Street in Fort Point, Boston. One aspect of city life is the rarity of a starlit sky. Memories of crisp, cold air and midnight black skies, punctuated by brilliant blue-white stars, are evoked by this installation.

The area is frequently traversed by the many workers and residents of our community, but it is currently dingy and poorly lit. Starry Night will create a glow that transforms that short walk into a festive, enchanting and memory-evoking experience.
