FIGMENT Boston 2014 is coming!

Saturday July 26 and Sunday July 27

FIGMENT Boston is returning for a fifth year of fun and revelry on the Rose Kennedy Greenway! Founded in 2007 on New York City’s Governors Island, what began as a few thousand enthusiasts enjoying a handful of participatory art projects on a sunny July afternoon has ballooned into a multi-day, multi-city event that drew over 30,000 participants in NYC, Boston, Jackson, MS and Detroit in 2011. In 2014, FIGMENT seeks to continue its mission to offer free, inclusive and participatory art to entire communities, removing the barriers of museum and gallery walls and entrance fees and blurring the lines between those who create and those who enjoy art.

 

For a second year FIGMENT Boston is happy to host FIGMENT After Dark in Dewey Square on Saturday July 26 from 6pm-11pm, the perfect centerpiece to a weekend of fun, free art! Dance to music and enjoy spontaneous roving performances as well as some special installation art perfect for nighttime!

What:

FIGMENT is an explosion of creative energy. It’s a free, annual celebration of participatory art and culture where everything is possible. For two days this summer, we will transform the Rose Kennedy Greenway into a large-scale collaborative artwork, and then it’s gone, without a trace.

When:

Saturday, July 26 — 11AM – 11PM

FIGMENT After Dark Saturday 6pm-11pm!

    I remember that day, it was fantastic! Today, my teacher asked me to write about one of my favourite events encountered in my life and one idea came into my mind – I will write about FIGMENT Boston 2014.
