There was something in the air on the Rose Kennedy Greenway last weekend...bright faces, engaged minds and playful spirits. Over the course of two days, FIGMENT Boston became a place where community connections were made, art became something that you play with and everyone learned something they didn't know before. FIGMENT Boston wants to thank all of the artists, volunteers and YOU for participating and making an event created by and for the larger community!

FIGMENT 2016 artist participants are invited to a walkthrough and meet and greet on the Rose Kennedy Greenway.

 

You'll find us at 7pm on the hardscape of Dewey Square, next to the South Station Red Line stop. Keep an eye out for FIGMENT volunteers in our bright t-shirts!

You will have a chance to meet with the Curators, see where your project is placed, meet other artists and ask any questions. 

After the walk through on the Greenway, we'll head over to Brandy Pete's (267 Franklin Street). Share a pint, toss around some ideas or get advice on current projects. The FIGMENT Boston Curatorial Team will be ready to answer any questions and assist with the project submission process.

FIGMENT Boston 2016 Call For Art

FIGMENT Boston 2016: What Are You Bringing?

FIGMENT Boston, now in it’s seventh year, offers opportunities for both emerging and established artists to showcase original works and create something that gets people to interact, to participate and collaborate with each other on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in downtown Boston! Your FIGMENT project can be anything... A game, an experiment, a request, a challenge, a guided meditation, a performance based on audience input, a sculpture that moves or responds, a  heart-stopping technological innovation that changes the way we see the world… Anything that gets people spontaneously working, playing, and creating together!

FIGMENT Boston welcomes works in every imaginable medium including sculpture, installation, performance, music, workshops, games, experiences, site-specific pieces, social experiments–anything you can dream of. We invite any project that inspires visitors to participate and interact with art. Dream big and come share with your FIGMENT friends and the Boston public at the Rose Kennedy Greenway for our 2016 event!
