Woof ! Public Art Exhibit to Open in Navy Yard June 21, 2018
Charlestown, MA – June 11, 2018
The Navy Yard Garden Association announces a Summer Solstice Celebration and Grand Opening of its unique dog themed sculptural exhibit in the Navy Yard’s Shipyard Park on Thursday June 21, 2018 from 7PM to sunset. The public is invited to attend this free family friendly event.
The traditional start of summer will welcome Massachusetts sculptor Dale Rogers and his whimsical art exhibit, The Big Dog Show, consisting of twenty 8foot high steel sculptures on display from June 21 to September 10. The big dog sculptures will be installed throughout the Navy Yard in Shipyard Park, Boston National Historical Park, and along the Harbor Walk.
The exhibit is hosted by the Navy Yard Garden Association in partnership with the Boston Planning and Development Agency, Boston National Historical Park, and the National Park Service. A growing list of sponsors includes Bark Around Boston, Boston Dermatology and Laser Center, Boston Harbor Cruises, Charlestown Marina, Crate Escape, Cut-Splice, D.C. Beane and Associates, Diversified Automotive, Garrick-Santo Landscape Co., Harborview at the Navy Yard, Legal Sea Foods, MGH Institute of Health Professions, Pier 6 Restaurant, 7-Eleven, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, Spinelli-Hickey Limited Partnership, The Stevens Group, and USS Constitution Museum.
Award winning metal sculptor Dale Rogers believes, “Adding art to public landscapes can inspire people of all ages…invoke a thought, generate a conversation, and create a strong connection for people who view it. Historically, dogs have made positive and lasting impressions with people and I want The Big Dog Show to do the same.”
Please join us for the grand opening of this special outdoor art exhibit. Enjoy delicious food truck offerings, hear live music, and attend a ribbon cutting ceremony with distinguished guests.
Come for the fun and stay for the sunset with spectacular views of Boston harbor. Walk, run, bike or boat to the Charlestown Navy Yard for a sculpture stroll along a delightful two mile route with your family, friends and favorite dog.
