Os Gemos mural in Boston

Year in rewind: BosGuy’s favorite posts from 2012

This year Boston’s museum, Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), invited two Brazilian street artists to Boston to feature their work  in their first showing in the US. They also commissioned this public art installation in downtown near my office. This was originally posted in September 2012.
