"Line of Life" Art Series Launched by "Top 25 Innovator Under 25"

News Image

Who: People from Boston and around the world will come together to create one of the largest collaborative art pieces in Boston's history in support of last year’s victims, the marathon community, and the city as a whole. The “Line of Life” art series is designed by MIT Community Innovator’s Fellow, Ernest M. English, a New Orleans native who was named as one of Boston.com’s TOP 25 INNOVATOR UNDER 25.

What: The installations are apart of English’s “Line of Life” series. Originally, the “Line of Life” reached people through a hands-on paint by number system, but for his upcoming installations during this weekend’s Boston Marathon, he is taking a digital approach by using photos uploaded by the public. Without the public’s participation, this visual representation of community would not exist.

When: April 19-21, 2014

Where: The continuous “Line of Life” photo mosaic will be displayed at two major Boston locations—Boylston Plaza at the Prudential Center and the MBTA substation on Newbury Street near Mass Ave.

Why: The purpose of this series is to express the power of collaboration, and represent a stronger, more unified Boston through the arts. Proceeds from sponsorship go on to support OneFund and local socially impactful projects.

How: People can upload their pictures at http://www.emagcollab.com to participate.
