"Public Trust," an interactive public artwork by Paul Ramirez Jonas, August 27—September 17, 2016.
Locations: Dudley Square, Roxbury, MA, Copley Square, Boston, MA, and Kendall Center, Cambridge, MA. A Now + There commission and production. Video by RAVA Films.
Between August 27 and September 17, 2016, over 950 people in Greater Boston made a promise to themselves and the world with artist Paul Ramirez Jonas and a team of artist ambassadors. Their promises sparked a conversation about the value of our words — a conversation that continues today.
Public Trust was generously supported by the Lewis Family Foundation, which believes that our communities grow stronger through artistic expression and numerous private donations.
Our location partners included the Boston Art Commission, Boston Public Library, Boston Properties, Cambridge Arts Council, City of Boston Parks Department, Dudley Branch of the Boston Public Library, and the Kendall Square Association.
A special thank you to the many generous citizens who participated in Public Trust!
