__________________________________________________________________________ ABOUT ARMENIAN HERITAGE PARK ON THE GREENWAY
Armenian Heritage Park on the Greenway welcomes all in celebration of the immigrant experience. The Park graces the public space with design features to engage all ages.
The Abstract Sculpture, a split dodecahedron, commemorates the immigrant experience. Annually, the Abstract Sculpture is reconfigured, symbolic of all who pulled away from their country of origin and came to these Massachusetts shores, establishing themselves in new and different ways. In late March, a crane lifts and pulls apart the two halves of the split dodecahedron, made of steel and aluminum, and reshapes the two halves of the geometric shape into a new and different Abstract Sculpture.
The Abstract Sculpture sits atop a Reflecting Pool; its waters wash over its sides and re-emerge as a single jet of water at the Labyrinth's center. The Abstract Sculpture is dedicated to lives lost during the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923 and all genocides that have followed.
The Labyrinth, a circular winding path paved in grass and inlaid stone, celebrates life's journey. A single jet of water marks its center, representing hope and rebirth. Art, Service, Science and Commerce are etched around its circle in tribute to contributions made to American life and culture.
Armenian Heritage Park and its Abstract Sculpture and Labyrinth are recognized as Public Art. At the crossroads of resident, business and tourist footpaths, the Park is between Faneuil Hall Marketplace and Christopher Columbus Park.
Armenian Heritage Park and its endowed public programs including the Annual Reconfiguration of the Abstract Sculpture, the Najarian Lecture on Human Rights at Faneuil Hall and the Park's ongoing care is a gift from Armenian-Americans to the City of Boston and the Commonwealth.
