Arts This Week: Take A Fanciful Ride

September 12, 2013

Greenway Carousel Now Open on the Rose Kennedy Greenway across from Christopher Columbus Park and Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

Inspired by the imaginations and drawings of Boston public school children, sculptor Jeff Briggs created life-like characters that include 14 different animals native to the land, sea and air of Massachusetts. Carousel characters include a lobster, sea turtle, cod, peregrine falcon, grass hopper, harbor seal, fox, skunk, whale, squirrel, rabbit, butterfly, barn owl, and sea serpent. The Tiffany & Co. Foundation Grove will feature a variety of trees, shrubs, and perennials to offer four seasons of color and horticultural interest. A natural green canopy will provide shade and buffer noise and visual distractions from the street. The Greenway Carousel and Grove will be organically maintained.
