Museum of Fine Arts
Remis Auditorium, Boston
Tickets: $15 members, $18 non-members

I just signed up for this lecture.  It will be fascinating to hear how they reclaimed these derelict rail structures and created a park.  Come join me!

Robert Hammond, co-founder and executive director, Friends of the High Line, will share the story of how the High Line, a new public park atop an elevated freight rail structure in Manhattan, became an innovative urban reclamation project.

Hammond and his co-founder collaborated with neighbors, elected officials, artists, local business owners, and leaders in horticulture and landscape architecture, to create a park celebrated as a model for creatively designed, socially vibrant, ecologically sound public space.  A book signing follows.

This is a ticketed event – $15 MFA members, $18 others.  Tickets may be reserved by calling 1-800-440-6975, going in person to the Remis Auditorium box office at the Museum, or visiting www.mfa.org.
