The Cochituate Rail Trail is the site of a temporary art installation put together by Studios Without Walls, a Brookline-based artists’ collaborative that produces exhibitions in outdoor and public settings. The half-mile stretch between the Cochituate State Park spur and the Amvets building has been transformed into free pop-up “museum” of 12 sculptures created by 15 artists. Self guided tours, art treasure hunt, and maps of the exhibition are available daily through Oct. 15.
The path is still open to cyclists and walkers, but now there’s a little culture thrown into the rail trail experience. Yes, taking the kids to the exhibit counts as a museum visit. The usual rules of “no touching the artwork” apply. The rules about no running/biking/yelling in the “museum” do not.
Here are some pics of our recent spin on the trail:
