Pathways to Freedom Encounters

Pathways to Freedom is a JArts public art project by internationally-acclaimed social sculptor Julia Vogl that will be installed on the Boston Common.  Inspired by the universal themes of the Passover Exodus  story, the project will engage a broad multi-cultural  audience from across the city in a community-wide  dialogue around freedom and immigration.

Julia’s artwork will reflect the hundreds of conversations she will have in the Greater Boston area, asking people from all backgrounds about their journeys to freedom.  Drawing inspiration from these stories, and the  symbolism within a Passover seder, Vogl will create a larger than life visual representation around the  Boston Common Parkman Bandstand. The installation will be on display from April 25th – May 2nd of 2018, during Boston Art Week (beginning April 27).

To be part of this project, join us for an encounter with Julia. She will be available at events across the region, March 20th – April 8th of 2018. Currently scheduled events are listed below. Complete details and updates will be available beginning February 1.
