Street Seats Opening Celebration
Special Event: Take a Seat! 20 Semi-Finalists’ Benches On-View Around Fort Point Channel for Afternoon Outdoor Celebration.
April 27, 1:00 – 3:00pm
Boston Harborwalk, Gillette Public Dock – near 36-98 Necco Ct Boston, MA 02210
Join Design Museum Boston as we celebrate the unveiling of 20 Semi-Finalist benches and the selection of 3 finalists in the culmination of our international design competition, Street Seats. Presented by Red Thread and hosted by P&G/Gillette: You’re welcome to take a seat, enjoy the view, and walk Boston’s beautiful Fort Point Channel to see first-hand how design can impact public spaces. You can participate too, by voting for your favorite bench in the People’s Choice $2,000 cash prize category. Our all-star panel of judges will review, test, deliberate, and choose one Grand Prize and one Runner-Up winner, who will be awarded $5,000 and $2,000 respectively. All 20 Semi-Finalists and all 170+ entries are on view here.
This event is free and open to the public and there is free public parking on A Street thanks to P&G/Gillette. Designers, design enthusiasts, non-designers, and people of all ages, and families are welcome. We’ll have food trucks, music, and tours, so make it a day to remember on the Boston waterfront.
