Artists partner with Boston city departments to make meaningful change
Musician and composer Shaw Pong Liu, video artist Georgie Friedman, and visual and performing artist L’Merchie Frazier all have revolutionary new ideas about using art to transform city services.
The three artists were selected this month from an impressive field of candidates with plans to work with city departments in Boston. Check out their projects which include: quilting to help recover from abuse, nature videos to invigorate public space, and music to take on race and gun violence.
