In celebration of the season, Gallery 263 presents Echo, a collection of photography and video documenting Soundscapes, an event that brought music and dance to Spectacle Island during the Isles Arts Initiative of Summer 2015. The Isles Arts Initiative (IAI), in coordination with the Boston Harbor Island Alliance, FLUX.Boston, National Park Service, Department of Conservation and Recreation, Greenovate Boston, and the Boston Art Commission transformed the Boston Harbor Islands into a canvas primed for artistic activation and social engagement. Soundscapes, curated by local musician and Gallery 263 Marketing and Music Program Director Leah Hennessy, featured performances by The Lula Wiles, Palaver Strings, Opal Puckett, and a parade led by Cocek! Brass Band and members of Urbanity Dance Company. Photographer Meghan Ireland, and videographers Ian McLellan and Dylan Ladds captured the striking combination of scenery and song at the event.
Please join us for a special screening event and reception on Thursday, July 28, 7-9 PM. The video component of Echo will be available for streaming on our website beginning Friday, July 29.
