King Boston Art

We published a King RFQ in December 2017, received 126 submissions over the next few months. We then selected five finalists in May 2018, gave them these guidelines. Here is our project overview. We published the five finalist designs at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square and the Bolling Building in Dudley Square from September 18th to October 16th, giving the public that one month to provide input. The Art Committee is now reviewing all public input and will be interviewing the artists, with the goal being to select and announce the winning design in December 2018.

Here are the designs from our five finalists:

Here is some recent press on the designs: Boston Globe, WBUR, Curbed Boston.
