Sixteen sculptures were installed in Riverway Park last week, for the 25th installment of Studios Without Walls. 

Hosted by the Brookline Department of Public Works, the sculptures by local artists will be in place all summer until Sept 2.

Studios Without Walls started in 1999 at Allandale Farm, and has grown and expanded its work since.

“Our purpose is to expand and educate audiences to appreciate, participate in, and become enriched by site-responsive sculpture, installation, and conceptual art,” the group says on its website. “We seek to project a full and lively presence, increasing public visibility of creative thinking at work. We emphasize creative dialogue with the community-at-large, continuing to investigate opportunities for public art and elevating public discourse on the arts.”
