On Mother's Day morning, I was served coffee in bed and then taken to Boston's ICA for a dose of contemporary art. Upon entering the beautifully designed building we were greeted with an amazing mural by Swoon, a street artist specializing in wheatpaste prints and intricate paper cutouts. Her Boston ICA installation represents humanity's relation to Earth. Not only is the entire wall boldly detailed with pattern and color; a long paper streamer connected to the wall guides you around the corner to a tall bamboo sculpture that can be viewed at multiple levels from within a glass elevator. The sculpture is just as intricate and complicated as the mural. If you haven't seen Swoon's Boston installation, you must do it, as well as the current exhibit: Figuring Color.
Many thanks to my hubby, Max, Ben and Zoe for making my Mother's Day so special.
Check out this this Swoon piece. Do any of you, Cambridge or Somerville locals, know what building it's painted on?
