Mending Boston

Friday, May 17, 2:00 PM

Free with Museum admission

Join us in the Education Studio to lend your hand to Mending Boston. Created by artists Clara Wainwright and Eve Perkins, Mending Boston is a 12 foot by 4 foot impressionistic map of the areas most affected by the tragedy surrounding 2013's Boston Marathon. By bringing this collage to various sites around Boston, including the Gardner Museum, the artists intend to help communities respond with a sense of shared purpose and encourage groups of people to work together to 'mend' collectively.

Clara Wainwright and Eve Perkins will be on hand to work with visitors throughout the afternoon.

Mending Boston will be happening at various sites around the city from May 6, 2013 until early June.
