A Garden Grows at the MFA

In this one-minute video, artists Ekua Holmes and Elizabeth James-Perry talk about their contributions to “Garden for Boston.” Over summer 2021, the artists use sunflowers and corn to reshape the MFA's Huntington Avenue lawn—and the space around Cyrus Dallin’s bronze sculpture Appeal to the Great Spirit (1909) in particular—into a growing, blooming summer garden.

This video is produced by Beyond MEASURE Productions, a Boston-based, diasporic-owned filmmaking company dedicated to showcasing the human experience in its fullness and breadth.
