Join Lucas Cowan, Public Art Curator for the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy and Don Tellalian, AIA, the Armenian Heritage Park’s architect and designer to learn about the Park’s abstract sculpture representing the immigrant experience.

The abstract sculpture, a split rhomboid dodecahedron, commemorates the immigrant experience. Annually, the sculpture is reconfigured, symbolic of all who pulled away from their country of origin and came to these Massachusetts shores, establishing themselves in new and different ways. In late March, a crane lifts and pulls apart the two halves, made of steel and aluminum, to create a new sculptural shape. The abstract sculpture sits atop a reflecting pool, the water of which washes over its side and re-emerges as a single jet of water at the Labyrinth’s center, representing hope and rebirth.

Tea and desserts will follow the event, hosted by The Bostonian Hotel & MEM Tea.
