Before you head home from work in Boston tomorrow evening, consider stopping at a special event in the South Boston Seaport. To mark the 25th anniversary of its site selection and design, the US Courthouse on Fan Pier is sponsoring a public exhibition, film, and discussion about the development of the Innovation District, where the Courthouse opened in 1998.
Peter Vanderwarker (LF ’97) and Bob Nesson have produced Seaport Views, a documentary film that will catalyze discussion about the future of the new development underway on Boston’s waterfront. In it, interviews with the developers, planners, residents, and workers articulate the complex process of building a new city.
The exhibition, which will run through December, includes Vanderwarker’s photographs of the Seaport and original artworks by high school students from Artists for Humanity.
An opening reception for the exhibition and premiere of the film will be held at the John Joseph Moakley Courthouse tomorrow, October 6, 2016 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. A discussion facilitated by a panel of architects and planners will provide a basis for an ongoing discussion of where this neighborhood might be headed. Admission is free, but RSVP is required: RSVP2@mad.uscourts.gov.
