A night at the Boston Common with flashlights, glowsticks, and immersive public art with profound questions that uplift what we have in common!
Join the Friends of the Public Garden and Now + There for a nighttime tour of Janet Zweig’s “What Do We Have In Common?” –– an immersive art piece commissioned to celebrate the Friends of the Public Garden's 50th anniversary and inspire conversation about commonalities and public ownership. The piece is a handcrafted, double-sided cabinet with drawers filled with markers that glow at nighttime. There are guides encouraging visitors to participate in conversations inspired by the markers that ask, “Who owns the moon?”, “Who owns the parks?”, and other profound prompts.
Over the last month, the blue markers have taken over the ground at the Boston Common, and on Tuesday at dusk, the largest number of markers will be on display and glowing after dark.
Meet the Friends and the guides near the cabinet and see the installation come alive after dark on Boston Common. Space is limited, please RSVP (tour will last 30-45 minutes and is available for people of all ages).
