New Public Art Unveiled at Animal Rescue League

Several hundred people came out in the heat on Friday to welcome a new privately funded, public work of at the Animal Rescue League of Boston in the South End.  The new statue, called “Dancing with Spheres,” was commissioned by Brookline resident Tony Lopes and designed by artist David Phillips to evoke a sense of kindness towards animals, Phillips said.   “My love of animals aligned with that of Tony’s,” he said. “When we both found that we loved animals so much we decided to approach the ARL and that’s the way it went,” he said.  Lopes, a retired teacher donated all of the money needed for the statue. How much was needed, he did not say. But he did say he was extremely pleased with the final result.  “He’s put so much extra effort into this work and I can’t believe how perfectly it came out,” Lopes said. “This incredible piece of work not only enriches the community, it enriches my life to know [Phillips.]” The statue features several happy looking animals jumping or playing on or near trees, including a dog and cat that are holding hands, a lounging bunny, a frog, turtle, and even a squirrel. “Not many squirrels are immortalized in bronze, I think,” said Phillips.  Phillips said the design for the statue was greatly influenced by the ARL and even the space where it now sits, as he designed the statue in a way that it can be see from Tremont Street outside the ARL’s dog play yard.  “‘Dancing with Spheres’ has a wonderful new home, and I am hoping a lot of people will see it,” said Phillips.

New Boston Parks App To Be Unveiled Thursday

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council will present an update on the Hubway bike share program and introduce a new Web app that helps connect residents to the many parks and open spaces available in Greater Boston during a Brown Bag Lunch event on Thursday. “As Hubway’s third season gets rolling, we will take a look back at the results of the first two seasons. Does Hubway make it easier for people to get around? Are Metro-Boston residents getting more exercise because of Hubway? Who is using Hubway, and who isn’t? We will look at these questions and more, including the environmental and economic impact of Hubway, and whether Hubway is making the Boston region more bike-friendly,” MAPC said in a press release about the event, which will be held Thursday from 12-1 p.m. at MAPC headquarters, 60 Temple Place, Boston, in the third-floor conference room. The Hubway bike share system features more than 80 stations all over Boston and in Brookline, Cambridge and Somerville. The new Boston Green Map application features a detailed, easy-to-use listing of Greater Boston’s parks and open spaces, plus details about each site’s facilities, such as playing fields, walking trails and beaches, according to the MAPC announcement. “Currently the website covers all neighborhoods in Boston and seven surrounding municipalities: Arlington, Belmont, Brookline, Cambridge, Chelsea, Somerville, and Watertown. More communities will be added soon. With a planned release later in the summer, the website is an active work in progress, and we invite comments and suggestions,” the MAPC announcement states.
