The Emerald Necklace Conservancy is celebrating its 20th anniversary with an innovative new series of art displays and performances - all created using fog.
Artist Fujiko Nakaya developed the public art exhibit called “Fog x FLO." They will be on display from dawn til dusk across five locations of the Emerald Necklace park system from now until October 31.
Nakaya’s “climate responsive,” shape-shifting, pure water forms invite visitors to immerse themselves in the art, experience nature anew, and appreciate the vital role of the Emerald Necklace in our city’s history, present, and future," announces EmeraldNecklace.org.
The 1,100-acre park system was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, hence the FLO in the exhibit's title.
Daily displays include:
Fog x Canopy at Back Bay Fens
Appearing for 5 minutes on the hour and half hour from 8am to 8pm.
Fog x Island at Olmsted Park
Appearing for 8 minutes on the hour and half hour from 8am to 8pm.
Fog x Beach at Jamaica Pond Park
Appearing for 9 minutes on the hour from 8am to 8pm.
Fog x Hill at Arnold Arboretum

and Fog x Ruins at Franklin Park

Just think how cool these interactive displays will be during the spooky fall nights leading up to Halloween!
