Powerful Public Art Strikes Again

In December 2014 a political artist from Jamaica Plain created a piece of public art as a commentary on the number of children killed by guns on a daily basis. That piece was made of painted children's chairs attached to a chain-link fence, and was removed within 48 hours by the Boston Police Department, located across the street from the art site. The removal of that piece did not deter the artist who yesterday installed a new work. This new piece consists of t-shirts on wire hangers, installed once again on the chain-link fence across the street from Boston Police Headquarters on Columbus Avenue. The artist along with “3 fearless grandmothers” installed the piece and two large painted banners following the 10,000 strong Mother's Day March on Sunday.
