Garrison Canal – New Public Art in Downtown

Monday, May 14, 2018

If you were disappointed to see Energy Flow removed from the Rachel Carson Bridge, you’ll be happy to see certain elements re-used in Garrison Canal, our latest public art installation in collaboration with artist Andrea Polli.

The piece turns Garrison Place into an imaginary underwater future world of big data. Visitor to the Canal can “swim” below waves of thousands of shimmering lights that transform color and animate in response to real-time changes in local weather conditions.

The project is part of a larger initiative to enliven Downtown alleyways with lighting, artwork, and pedestrian enhancements. Read more about the project here.
