Window scenes on view in Downtown Crossing


Boston Art Windows, a joint project of the City of Boston and the Boston Redevelopment Authority, presents ?$ome �olor,? a group exhibition of site-specific installations on view in Boston's Downtown Crossing area.

The artists include Magda Fernandez (administrative assistant, Office of the Arts), creator of "Mars Inc.," a work-in-progress of digital photos that imagines the development of Mars in the image of the United States' own evolution.

Also, Meg Rotzel (administrative assistant, Center for Advanced Visual Studies) and Jae Rhim Lee (graduate student, Visual Arts Program) have collaborated on "Service: Me for You," which pays tribute to all the women and men working in the area. The artists will perform errands and services for each other in uniform and document their actions. Both installations can be seen on Avery Street.

The Boston Art Windows project, established to enliven the windows of commercial property with cutting-edge contemporary art, can be seen through Monday, Oct. 31.
