To get some inspiration for our Main Street Project, we decided to go on a field trip to see all the different types of public art around Boston.
First, we went to the Emerald Necklace Park at the Fenway. It was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, who is considered to be the father of landscape architecture. We really enjoyed walking around the park and seeing the nature around us.
Because we had some free time, we played a game of Duck-Duck-Goose! It was a lot of fun to have all the Majors play a game from our childhoods and not have to worry about anything else. A group of high school students chasing each other around must have been quite a sight to see. In a way, we became part of the public art in the park because people passing by would stop to watch, and they always walked away smiling.
After that, we stopped by the Northeastern campus to have some yummy food before arriving at our final destination: the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum!
We picked the ISG because the museum itself is a work of public art. It was carefully constructed by Isabella Stewart Gardner herself and walking around it was like a dream!
Overall, we had such a great time that day and everyone seemed to have really bonded on the trip!
