PUBLIC ART EXHIBIT IN THE CHARLESTOWN NAVY YARD, BOSTON

Come to the Charlestown Navy Yard in Boston to experience and enjoy a new sculpture exhibit by award winning Massachusetts artist Michael Alfano whose work is in private and public collections throughout the world.

This free exhibit brings museum quality art to the public realm and offers a welcome outdoor activity while walking, biking and enjoying views of the City of Boston skyline.

Of Many Minds consists of 20 sculptures extending from the USS Constitution in the Boston National Historical Park to various sites along the Boston Harborwalk and ending at Mayor Menino Park at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.

Michael Alfano is known for creating figurative and surrealistic sculptures that go beyond the literal, adapting the human form to convey philosophical ideas and abstract concepts.

The exhibit is intended to be accessible and understandable to people of all walks of life.

Each of the sculptures has a quote to further the conversation and foster different ideas.

The artist expects there can be as many meanings as there are people viewing the art.

Visitors of all ages will enjoy viewing and interacting with the sculptures.

This free exhibit brings museum quality art to the public realm and offers a welcome outdoor activity while walking, biking and enjoying views of the City of Boston skyline.
