Discover Fog x FLO: Fujiko Nakaya on the Emerald Necklace by foot, by bike, by car and by public transit.

With Fog x FLO, Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya responds 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 our city’s history, present, and future.

Organized by the Conservancy with curator Jen Mergel, This FREE public art presentation is on view every day and several times an hour from 8am to 7pm, from August 11 through October 31.
