Boston Globe editorial commends the BCEC Marquee and the Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion
A recent Boston Globe editorial cites the BCEC Marquee and the LED panels at the Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion as two examples of video displays that enhance the public realm.
. . . when it’s not broadcasting advertisements or information for conventioneers, the 80-foot-high video display outside of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center cycles through 17 different video installations made by Massachusetts artists, whose eye-popping works would fit in just as well on the walls of the Institute of Contemporary Art. Similarly, two screens outside of the Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion present abstract images created from data collected from tides and wind speeds on the islands themselves. Far from being urban blight, each of these billboards enhances its environment because its content balances commercial opportunity with art and public service.
