Finding the Hidden Gem
The Upper Falls Greenway is one of Newton's hidden gems. We at the N-Squared Innovation District want to use art to help make the space a destination for the people who live and work in the region. A group of artists from Studios Without Walls will create artwork unique to the location and put it on display for two months.
Studios Without Walls
Working with a local group of artists, the N-Squared Innovation District Initiative plans to turn the walking path into a vibrant display of unique art, much of it designed specifically for the landscape. Studios Without Walls has produced similar projects in along the Riverway in Brookline, one of which is going on right now!

How can you help?
Our goal is to make this a full event, with enough sculptures to fill the Upper Falls Greenway and to keep it open for more than two months. Thanks to the donations of some wonderful early supporters, including Northland Development Corp., Crosspoint, the Charles River Neighborhood Foundation and the New Art Center, we have enough funds to get the project started.
Funds will go to paying the artists for their time both in creating the art as well as maintaining it. We will also promote it to the greater community, and celebrate the opening and closing appropriately.
If you would like to donate by check, please contact Chuck Tanowitz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where is it?
The Upper Falls Greenway is a wonderful walking path in the heart of Newton Upper Falls and the N-Squared Innovation District. It runs along an old railroad between the Charles River and the shopping districts along Needham Street.
What Events can we Have?
In addition to the artwork, the program will include a launch event, promotion to the local business community and kid's activities like a scavenger hunt.
