The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, in collaboration with the MIT List Visual Arts Center, unveiled a new mural in Dewey Square Park last Thursday, September 24. The new mural, the fourth in the Greenway’s rotating series on the wall, features a 70 x 76-foot-high textual piece titled “A Translation from One Language to Another” from internationally acclaimed conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner.

According to the Greenway’s website, Weiner’s goal for the piece is to “facilitate a personal experience and consideration of one’s place in the world.”

In celebration of the Weiner’s mural, the Greenway hosted a free public reception featuring a meet and greet with the artist, a live jazz trio from Berklee College of Music, a Haley House Poetry Slam, and snacks from local food trucks and the Dewey Square Farmer’s Market.
