Eddie Bruckner Fine Art
Eddie Bruckner's conceptual design for #JumpNatick was chosen as part of the Natick Center Creative Placemaking Weekend 2018.
#JumpNatick was commissioned as a temporary public art installation for the weekend of November 3-4, 2018 through November 17, 2018 by The Town of Natick, MA, The Natick Center Cultural District, and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) in Boston with support from the American Planning Association (APA), Americans for the Arts (AFTA), and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
"#JumpNatick was incredibly positive
and brought so much joy to people!
I would walk across the common and see
families playing; it was quite touching.
Great job and thanks for all you did
to make it happen Eddie!"
- Athena Pandolf, Executive Director of Natick Center Cultural District
Eddie Bruckner's work along with seven other temporary art and design projects aimed to transform public spaces in Natick Center. The selected projects demonstrated the potential for arts and culture to transform Natick Center through installations that can activate public spaces in ways that make Natick Center more interactive, inclusive, sustainable, and bold.
A Reception Event was held at the Common Street Spiritual Center on Sunday November 4, 2018, with artist talks and entertainment.
In addition to the Art Installation in Natick Common, Eddie Bruckner's original 4 foot by 12 foot painting will be on exhibit in the lobby of the Common Street Spiritual Center along with a display of photos posted to social media using the hashtag #JumpNatick for the November 3-4 Weekend Event. In addition to jumping on the Hopscotch Court, people can also interact with the artwork by posting photos with the artwork and viewing photos and videos on social media.
