Local Nonprofit and Artist Light Up Dorchester Street with Public Art

Golob to Hold Public Meeting in Dorchester to Source Ideas for Art Installation

Dorchester, MA. (Januray 22, 2018) Local artist, Alexander Golob and the non-profit Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation (CSNDC) are proud to unveil a new work of public light-art, Shining Strong, Shining Bright, along New England Avenue in Dorchester. This bright and dynamic silhouette public light-art installation has five panels that fill the windows of the vacated industrial building at 18 New England Avenue. It will be on view until summer, 2018.

At a time when the equity-related impacts of climate change are on the minds of all Americans, the art focuses on the increasingly important themes of cherishing nature and celebrating the diverse community that lives around Codman Square. Each panel features these themes at a different scale – the smallest being a leaf and the largest being traditional triple-decker houses. The panels were created with extensive community engagement – everything from the technique and theme, to the designs, was chosen and created with community input.

The placemaking project, supported by grants from the Boston Society of Architects Foundation and the Greater Boston Association of Realtors, as well as by a donation of materials from Sewphisticated, is focused on engaging residents from the Talbot-Norfolk Triangle Eco-Innovation District (TNT EID), Boston’s first Eco-District, and calls attention to CSNDC’s focus on affordable, eco-friendly, Transit-Oriented Development.  CSNDC is building a better, stronger Codman Square and Dorchester through the development of safe, sustainable, and affordable residential and commercial spaces, and by promoting financial and economic stability for residents of the neighborhood. CSNDC and Golob invite the community stop by and enjoy the new artwork.

Alexander Golob Commissioned to Create Interactive Snapchat Installation at Peabody Essex Museum’s Free Summer Block Party

 

Salem, MA. (July 6, 2017) – Emerging artist Alexander Golob invites visitors to the Peabody Essex Museum’s #HistoricHouseCrush Block Party to add their creative mark to an interactive artwork, #TheSnapGallery, on Thursday, July 20 from 6 to 9 pm. The block party shows off the museum’s collection of notable residencies and will feature ska music, free ice cream, and seasonal brews in the beer garden.

Participants will help Golob complete a large mural composed of hundreds of individual snapchats centered around the theme of home. By adding their compositions to the snaps with markers, visitors will bridge image-making techniques and traditions with digital age content creation. This interactive project also demonstrates how everyone can be an artist, especially when combining efforts into something larger than a single person, like a community art installation. 

#TheSnapGallery will be Golob’s first museum collaboration, and he is excited to share his creation with the Peabody Essex’s fantastic visitors. 

Golob will be accepting snap submissions to be included in the installation through his Instagram and Facebook pages (@AlexanderGolobArt) and through email (alexandergolobart@gmail.com). He and the Peabody Essex are specifically looking for images having to do with the theme of home, whatever that may mean to different individuals. The most creative submission will win a Golob Art t-shirt screen printed by the artist.

ALEXANDER GOLOB PARTICIPATES IN INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR

BOSTON, Ma. (Oct. 14, 2016) -- Golob Art partnered with the national organization, Represent.Us, to facilitate an educational discussion and workshop for a group of Dutch university students studying in the United States Friday, October 14, 2016.

 

According to the official website, Represent.Us is “the nation’s largest grassroots anti-corruption campaign, [which brings] together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to pass powerful anti-corruption laws that stop political bribery, end secret money, and give voters a stronger voice.” Cristian Morales, head of the Boston chapter of Represent.Us invited Alexander to serve as a guest speaker for the evening.

 

The students, representing a wide variety of educational backgrounds - from theater, to political science, to biology - have been on a ‘research trip’ to the United States with the intentions of studying the complementary nature between science and art, as well as whether this relationship plays a role in social change.

 

As a guest speaker, resident artist Alexander Golob spoke with the international students about art and activism - specifically how context affects social action and how visual symbology can be used to manifest change. Alexander also examined the Occupy Movement and Black Lives Matter as international and national movements which use art and creativity to initiate mass social change.

 

“As an artist, it’s important to be able to know why you create the art that you do,” Alexander said. “It’s an amazing thing to be able to use the creative process to spark real, tangible social change.”
