Fog Rolling In
In celebration of 20 years of the Emerald Necklace Conservancy, Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya was commissioned to bring her fog sculptures to Boston and create installations throughout the park. Designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted, the long flowing park runs through the city as part water engineering, part public green space. Several Northeastern faculty have been involved with this installation, including School of Architecture director, Dan Adams. Adams's firm is responsible for the plethora of signs throughout the park that were created for the installation. According to Adams, one of the goals of the exhibition has been to showcase the Emerald Necklace as a contiguous park, in a way it is not often seen since urban development has caused some separation between the larger sections of the park such as the Back Bay Fens, Franklin Park, and Jamaica Pond.
