Say goodbye to the Echelman sculpture at this closing event (for real this time)

The art will be de-installed on October 25.

The aerial sculpture by artist Janet Echelman suspended above the Rose Kennedy Greenway.

The original Echelman sculpture closing event was canceled due to the pesky and fickle New England weather, but rejoice: It’s been rescheduled.

The Greenway Conservancy will say goodbye to the aerial art with a celebration on October 20 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. before the piece is de-installed on October 25.

This event is free and lets you stand underneath the shimmering sculpture while enjoying goods from Clover and the Cookie Monstah Truck, as well as free hot cider and cookies (while they last, which will probably not be long at all).

Unfortunately you won’t be able to light up the sculpture yourself anymore because that component of the event was tied to HUBweek. But the Conservancy will unveil Echelman sculpture photo contest winners, screen the Above Summit drone footage, and show a time lapse detailing just how they managed to hang more than 100 miles of twine in the sky. Cirque de Light will be also be performing.
