(6.1) Well, it’s already open. Head down to Pike Street today at 5pm for the official opening of Matthew Kramer’s ‘Wood-Frame Arch’ (this may not be the title of the work, per se, but in the absence of any other information we’ll go with that).
This art installation is part of the I-195 Redevelopment District Commission interim art project (195district.com) — an effort to fill empty space where the highway used to be, written up in the ProJo last month.
Fourteen artists competed for their selections to be chosen by the I-195 Redevelopment District Commission, which selected six intended to lend an air of excitement to the vacant land. The artists whose work was selected are: Frank Hammond, Matthew Kramer, Topher Gent, Aarti Kathuria, Adam E. Anderson and Sophia Sobers.
Kate Bramson has some background on the artist and his inspiration in today’s ProJo.
Pike street is south of Point Street not far from Al Forno.
Arch opening free and open to the public, 5pm to 7pm, Sunday, June 1, Pike Street (map)
