Jamaica Pond Bench, 2006

This is the original guerrilla installation of May 13, 2006 of the Jamaica Pond Bench. It took the City of Boston approximately one week to discover that the bench was there, and then another four days to figure out it wasn't a City approved project. Duly reprimanded, the City, led be Boston City Parks Director of Facilities, Bernie Lynch, re-installed the bench at the Jamaica Pond for the rest of the Summer of 2006. In 2009, I approached the City again about installing the sculpture, and the City poured a concrete footing for the bench to temporarily reside for the Summer and Autumn months.

In 2016, Greg Cook compiled a list of the 50 Best Works of Public Art in Boston, ranked. The Jamaica Pond Bench is ranked 17th. The piece was self-funded, and is on long-term loan to the City of Boston's Parks Department.

AltasObscura lists the bench as a must-see for travelers to Boston.
