FPAC Spring Art Walk

The weekend of May 12th – 14th, Fort Point Arts Community’s numerous galleries and artist buildings will welcome the public to enjoy FPAC’s Spring Art Walk, a sister event to its landmark Fall Open Studios.

Spring Art Walk Gallery shows include FPAC’s member show at 300 Summer Street, group shows at Midway Gallery and Channel Center, and Planes in the Sky at the Atlantic Wharf Gallery. Planes in the Sky queries the significance and consequences of human progress, highlighting how advancement alters the landscape. The fifteen artists presented here examine how ingenuity evolves personal and cultural perspectives. Exploring modern science, stargazing, evolving architecture, nature and machine, Planes in the Sky offers a new idea of discovery.

This year’s participatory art piece is William Chambers’ Service Station. The Service Station is an interactive experience.  The attendant asks the question: “What is missing in your life or the world?” Participants are invited to talk about their experiences and consider embroidering their answers on the rest room towel.  It began in 2015 and has travelled to 10 cities and collected more than 300 embroidered answers.  Each roll is 40 yards long, leaving space for many words and images.
