"Industrial Inspiration: Images of the Old Northern Ave. Bridge"
2001-07-26 until 2001-08-09
Mobius, Fort Point Cultural Coalition
Boston, MA, USA

Boston photographers including Walter Crump, Todd Gieg, Eric Lowandowski, Bob Souther, Margaret B. Tittemore and others team up to bring together images of the Old Northern Avenue Bridge, a free public art installation. Project Coordinator Bill Reyelt describes the group show as an event that highlights the importance of the Old Northern Avenue Bridge as a critical link between downtown Boston and the Commonwealth Flats of South Boston.

Each of the photographers examine the role of the Old Northern Avenue Bridge played in the city's rail and port development as well as the aesthetic value of this turn of the century industrial infrastructure. The opening reception will be held directly on the bridge Thursday, July 26th, from 4-7 pm. The audience will be encouraged to wander up and down the bridge viewing the custom framed images. Support for this project comes from Seaport Asset Management, Seaport TMA, Fort Point Cultural Coalition, WalkBoston, Boston Preservation Alliance, The Children's Museum, Save the Old Northern Avenue Bridge and the Print Division of the Boston Public Library.

Bill Reyelt is a professional urban planner with a strong interest in Boston development issues. He has a background in art and design and previously taught high school photography in North Carolina. He became interested in creating an installation on the bridge through his participation in efforts to try to save the bridge from demolition. In addition to putting together this installation, he has arranged several area exhibits of the original photographs which are currently on view at the Children's Museum.
