Pathways to Freedom Installation
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 on the Boston Common. The installation will be on display from April 25th – May 2nd of 2018, during Boston Art Week (beginning April 27).
