The popular “High Tide” public art exhibit by Carolina Aragón is being removed this weekend, so take a final gander before it leaves the North End. The installation will be moving from its location across the Rose Kennedy Greenway to the Snug Harbor rotary in Quincy.
Professors Carolina Aragón and Elisabeth Hamin, from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, are conducting a research project to understand the role of public art in communicating about climate change. In particular, the study will look at the recent “High Tide” installation. The results of the study will be used to design guidelines for public artists interested in communicating about issues such as climate change.
