During Art Grove, on August 8 and 9, I will conduct smell tours/workshops and use them to collect data from visitors about who they are and what the Wilderness Grove area smells like to them. Through September 4, self guided tours will be available as well. After the project is over, I will be working with a perfumer to develop a (natural) perfume based on the information that has been collected. It will be called "Eau D'Wilderness Grove".
Pop-Up: Franklin Park Art Grove is a collaboration between the Boston Art Commission, Franklin Park Coalition, the William Monroe Trotter Institute, and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department. All related events are sponsored in part by the Boston Art Commission, Fund for the Arts at New England Foundation for the Arts, The Boston Cultural Council, and the Trotter Institute for African American Studies.
