Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya has created five fog installations along 12 different Boston neighborhoods. The fog sculptures are, "...shape-shifting, pure water forms invite visitors to immerse themselves in the art, experience nature anew, and appreciate the vital role of the Emerald Necklace in our city’s history, present, and future."

The sculptures will be on view every day, hourly from dawn to dusk, from August 11 through Halloween.

Nakaya calls fog “the most generous medium” and has created fog sculptures all over the world. For five decades she's worked with artists, musicians, designers and other creators to transform her fog sculptures into “fog performances.” Artists in Boston were invited to submit proposals and a schedule will be released about upcoming performances.

The Fog x Company will be near the Museum of Fine Arts, the Fog x Island will be in Brookline by the Leverett Pond, Fog x Beach will be on Jamaica Pond's beach, Fog x Hill will be in the Arnold Arboretum by the Hunnewell Building, and Fog x Ruins will be in Franklin Park.
