Northeastern Campus Joining in Public Art Movement


This summer, graffiti artist Jef Aérosol is transforming Northeastern’s urban campus into a public art destination. Joining the pieces created by previous visiting artists (El Mac, Daniel Anguilu, and Shepard Fairey) Aérosol’s work will be visible by passers-by, “creating art for the entire public community to enjoy—not just Northeastern but all of Boston” ( President Joseph Aoun hopes that through this public art initiative, the campus will continue to bring life and excitement to an area already filled with creative venues. Within walking distance from the university are the Museum of Fine Arts, Mass College of Art and Design, and the Isabella Steward Gardner Museum.
