    Connect Historic Boston

    Connect Historic Boston is an initiative between the National Park Service (NPS) and the City of Boston's Transportation Department to make walking, biking, and taking the T to National Park Service sites and other destinations in downtown Boston easy and fun.  As part of this initiative outreach has been expanded with a Public Art Ideas competition.

    Submissions are welcome by New England (ME, MA, NH, VT, RI and CT) University and College Students (graduate and undergraduate) from all fields, particularly the visual and performing arts, landscape architecture, design and engineering.

    Submit your ideas of how best to celebrate this initiative.  How would you call attention to public transportation and historical sites?  How do you engage and activate the streets, infrastructure, stations, waterways, sites and even transportation itself, enhancing the experience of moving through the city?  What are the opportunities to create a memorable event or intervention that celebrates city life?  Is it performative, ephemeral, temporal or virtual?  Can you imagine a Hubway (bikeshare) ballet?  A light, sound or video installation?  A ferry parade?

    The scope is broad and far-reaching, but whatever you conjure up MUST relate to transportation, movement and place.

    Follow this link to download a PDF document with more information, including the submission form.  Submission deadline is April 5 2013 at 5pm.
