Globe Features Emerson’s Vision for Boylston Street Corridor

Emerson College’s vision for the southeastern corner of Boston Common, including a 13-story projection mapping installation set to go up on the Little Building, was featured on the front page of the November 28 Boston Globe.

The article highlighted the Uncommon Project, which will feature works from Emerson faculty and students, as well as local artists, which is scheduled to open on Friday.

“Great cities have great art. Extraordinary cities have great, extraordinary public art,” Emerson President Lee Pelton told the Globe. “It’s kind of a testament to Emerson’s investment in the city.”

Pelton also talked about his plans to widen the sidewalk along Boylston Street and bring the “coolest, hippest” retail to a newly renovated Little Building — all in the service of making Emerson’s campus a “hub of the downtown corridor.”
