As part of the Emerald Necklace Conservancy's 20th Anniversary celebration, the Conservancy welcomes to Boston and Brookline Fujiko Nakaya’s first extended citywide exhibition of multiple “fog sculptures,” marking her five decade career with works at five sites along the historic urban parks that link more than a dozen neighborhoods, and provide a natural, recreational and cultural conduit for the community.
Created in response to the landmarked waterways and landscapes designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (FLO), Nakaya’s “climate responsive” shape-shifting, pure water forms invite visitors to immerse themselves in the art, experience nature anew, and appreciate the vital role of the Emerald Necklace in Boston's history, present, and future.

This FREE public art presentation is on view every day, hourly from dawn to dusk, from August 11 through October 31. Click here to learn how to visit this amazing exhibition.
Nakaya calls fog “the most generous medium” and has collaborated for decades with artists, musicians, designers and more to transform her fog sculptures to “fog performances.” Artists in the Boston area are welcome to submit proposals for events. Check our calendar for a schedule of fog events!
