The Greenway Wall in Dewey Square Park has a bold new mural, unveiled Sept. 24. It is a textual work by internationally acclaimed conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner titled “A translation from one language to another.” Commissioned by the Greenway Conservancy in partnership with the MIT List Visual Arts Center, this is the fourth mural on the air intake building at Dewey Square Park across from South Station. The 70 by 76 foot high mural is an award-winning focal point in the Greenway’s contemporary public art program.

The words on the Greenway Wall, “A translation from one language to another,” are contextualized by their surroundings and open for interpretation by each person of every generation who passes through Dewey Square Park. To celebrate the new mural, a party featured live music, an interactive poetry slam and Greenway food trucks.
