At the Boston Harbor Pop-Up, kids of all ages can explore the harbor, create designs in the sand, and color murals featuring Boston’s sports teams and images from Boston Harbor. They can also learn and share stories and songs of the sea from Boston’s nautical past, and even pose for a picture with a big striped bass with Boston Harbor in the background.

“Last year Save the Harbor ’shared the harbor’ with more than 30,000 kids from more than 100 organizations from 40 communities on the region’s public beaches and in the Boston Harbor Islands,” said Bruce Berman, Director of Strategy and Communications for Save the Harbor who curated the exhibition. “This Boston Harbor Pop-Up brings the beach and the islands into the heart of the city, for everyone to enjoy.”

The interactive exhibits include works by Save the Harbor’s Artists in Residence Olga Karayakina and Guillermo Erice as well as intertidal artist Andres Amador. It also includes fish prints, photographs, videos and other works created by Save the Harbor/Save the Bay’s Youth Environmental Education program staff.
