HUBweek 2018 kicked off throughout Boston on Monday, and by Wednesday, the festival’s “HUB” at City Hall Plaza was filled with splashes of color as the event’s exhibitions officially opened to the public. Shipping containers now sit awash in lush reds, blues, and greens, tagged by graffiti artists both local and international.

At this festival of the future, you’ll find innovative and enthralling installations, from a “remote reality residency” that bathes viewers in a a sea of white to a tangible “Neon Demon Crystal Cave” with enough vibrant hues and oddball shapes to keep even a toddler art critic’s attention.
