FIGMENT Boston is returning for a fifth year of fun and revelry on the Rose Kennedy Greenway! Founded in 2007 on New York City’s Governors Island, what began as a few thousand enthusiasts enjoying a handful of participatory art projects on a sunny July afternoon has ballooned into a multi-day, multi-city event that drew over 30,000 participants in NYC, Boston, Jackson, MS and Detroit in 2011. In 2014, FIGMENT seeks to continue its mission to offer free, inclusive, and participatory art to entire communities, removing the barriers of museum and gallery walls and entrance fees and blurring the lines between those who create and those who enjoy art.
FIGMENT is an explosion of creative energy. It’s a free, annual celebration of participatory art and culture where everything is possible. For two days this summer, we will transform the Rose Kennedy Greenway into a large-scale collaborative artwork, and then it’s gone, without a trace.
