CANCELLED: Update 8 a.m. Feb. 10: Unfortunately because MBTA train and bus service “remains suspended on all modes” today, we’re going to have to cancel this morning’s planned snow sculpting “Snow*ennial.” Much to our shame and regret. But the truth is we’d be unable to get there ourselves without public transit as Boston’s Dewey Square is rather far from from The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research’s New England headquarters in Malden. Sorry for any inconvenience. Stay warm and safe.
Update Feb. 9: We’ll have to postpone tomorrow’s snow sculpting event if MBTA public transit is not up and running Sunday morning. We contacted the MBTA to ask whether trains will be running tomorrow, and an MBTA spokesman told us right before 5 p.m.: “No decision has been made at this point, but you should not expect it.” We’ll check in with the MBTA early tomorrow morning and then confirm our plans.
What is the Snow-ennial?
It’s a winter wonderland community art project. Join us in building snow sculptures on the Rose Kennedy Greenway park at Dewey Square in Boston on the morning of Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013. It’s about adding surprise and delight to our (art) community.
How do I participate?
1. Assuming we all survive Snowmageddon, Sunday morning we’ll confirm at The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research whether The Snow-ennial will be taking place.
2. If it’s on, meet up near the giant Os Gemeos mural (pictured above) at Dewey Square, Atlantic Avenue at Summer Street, around 11 a.m. Feb. 10 to make snow sculptures. (You’re also welcome to come independently earlier or later.) Bring your friends. Bring your kids. Pass along this invite.
3. Your amazing snow sculpture designs are up to you. Impress your friends! Make something so awesome that the other snow-artists will be inspired to up their efforts in attempts to catch up to your genius. We recommend sculpting your snow creations along the Atlantic Avenue side of the park so that the snow masterpieces will be visible to passing traffic.
4. Join us for lunch (you must bring/buy your own) around noontime inside South Station.
5. Then more snow sculpting. If we’re not frozen.
6. E-mail us photos. We’ll post them at The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research to share that evening. Be sure to include your name, etc., so we can give proper credit.
How do I get there?
Dewey Square is conveniently located near South Station, which is served by the MBTA’s Red Line as well as commuter rail and coach bus.
Please let us know if you’re thinking of coming. But come regardless.
Update: More snowy art events around Boston.
