Matthew Ritchie to follow Os Gemeos in Dewey Square

boston public artFor nearly 18 months the colorful mural shown above in Boston’s Dewey Square has been one of the most discussed pieces of public art.

The Os Gemos mural was never meant to be permanent.  Rather the Institute of Contemporary Art is using the Big Dig ventilation building in Dewey Square as a canvas of sorts to feature modern artists.  As with the Os Gemeos mural, the next artist who’s work will be featured is expected to last approximately 18-months.

According to the Boston Globe article, British artist, Matthew Ritchie, was selected and will paint a 5,000-square-foot seascape that will be installed the week of Sept. 16.  I loved the mural from Os Gemeos and will miss it but I look forward to Ritchie’s contribution to Boston’s public art.

  1. I’m going to miss the Os Gemos mural on my way to and from South Station each day! Looking forward to the next one.
