Artist Lawrence Weiner, whose mural now adorns the Greenway Wall in Dewey Square Park, was among those gathered to celebrate the new piece of public art. The 73-year-old artist, whose textural mural reads “A TRANSLATION FROM ONE LANGUAGE TO ANOTHER,” was joined by Paul Ha, director of the List Visual Arts Center at MIT; Lucas Cowan, the Greenway Conservancy public art curator; Greenway Conservancy executive director Jesse Brackenbury; artist Ross Miller, whose Harbor Fog sculpture is located in the Wharf District Parks on the Greenway; Nancy Berliner, curator of Chinese art at the Museum of Fine Arts; and Jessie Washburne-Harris, director at Marian Goodman Gallery in New York.
