We’ll hail the end of summer and the start of the fall with a fabulous out-of-doors event at the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Members of The Contemporaries will gather for drinks and nibbles before a private tour of the Greenway at 6 pm focusing on the spectacular Janet Echelman installation, As If It Were Already Here, 2015. The Brookline-based artist will join us for a back-of-house look at the remarkable engineering that makes the piece possible. Lucas Cowan, Public Art Curator, Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, will then lead a tour of selected works of public art on the Greenway. Dinner in the area will cap the evening.
