Join us for a one-of-a-kind handcrafted mobile sauna experience and comfortable lounge featuring beach chairs, art, and a custom audio-visual experience!
Need to sweat out some tension? Visit Sweat it Out, a free-to-the-public art project featuring a sauna and lounge on the Harborwalk (between the Barking Crab and the Envoy Hotel). Join us in this warm, welcoming, safe place in the coldest of Boston months. Relax, and maybe even get comfortable enough to discuss issues of tension in Boston if you want.
Inside and outside of the sauna on December 2nd, Pennie Taylor will be guiding participants in exercises that explore how we define and maintain a sense of belonging. Pennie is a curator, organizer, and game designer based in Somerville, where she is on the founding board of the Union Square Neighborhood Council. She will bring her expertise in creating interactive and participatory museum installations to facilitate a conversation about belonging in public spaces and changing urban landscapes.
This event will also include a special closing tea ceremony led by artist Christen Shea.
A project by Caitlin Foley, Heather Kapplow, and Misha Rabinovich.
Sweat it Out is made possible with funding by the New England Foundation for the Arts' Creative City Program, with funding from The Barr Foundation and with additional support from the Boston Foundation.
Sweat it Out is also sponsored in part by Blue Hills Saving Bank.
