LEARN MORE

WOW: Wind on Water consists of 32 elegant sculptures grouped in eight locations extending from Shipyard Park at the northern end of the Freedom Trail just outside the Boston National Historical Park to various sites along the Boston HarborWalk.

The artist wants his sculptures to “inspire love for our earth’s thin, moving layer of air – it warms us, gives us breath, sustains our being…The undulating movements of (the) sculptures reflect the many moods of the wind.
