In the past 2-3 months I have noticed art popping up in the most unusual place on my walk with the two little monsters.
The East Boston Shipyard. Yes, you heard right. A place filled with one tiny fantastic restaurant and otherwise a bunch of burly, tough welders and sailors and what not. My even greater surprise was when I asked one of them about it and he was completely enthusiastic about the project. Talk about stereotyping. Me = Fail. I thought he’d be all “This art shit is stupid” and instead of that he said that he was looking forward to what was coming next.
Therefore, I present to you, my current most favorite projects in the Eastie Shipyard. If you haven’t been in this area of the city, you should get your fantastic possums asses down here for brunch or dinner at Scup’s, followed by a walk to the Airport Hyatt along the waterfront and then checking out shipyard art.
On the way to the Hyatt:
And here goes to art!! COOL art!!! My absolute FAVORITE, the mermaid:
My other favorite: The FISH!
All photos taken with iphone, so excuse the quality…well, frankly, I think the quality pretty much rocks. Now I just wish I could make a phone call without dropped calls and the iphone becomes a PHONE for me :)
