Memorial Installation at Old South Church

  • Old South Church 645 Boylston St. Boston, MA 02116 (map)

On April 15, 2013, Old South Church's blue and gold tower banners overlooked the Marathon Finish Line, saluting the race, the athletes, and the international spirit of sport. The banners bore witness to the ensuing tragedies and, behind FBI crime scene barriers, they hung for eight days at the mercy of wind and rain. They were tattered, but not destroyed. This year, these very banners are lovingly transformed by artist Kathleen Simone and installed along Boylston Street, at the heart of a city that was shaken but not destroyed.
