Finding the Hidden Gem

The Upper Falls Greenway is one of Newton's hidden gems. The Beyond Boundaries exhibit is about helping people gather on the Upper Falls Greenway and discover this hidden gem. The Greenway is a one-mile multi-use path that runs parallel to Needham Street, along an abandoned railroad spur. It is at once a bucolic setting and a connection back to the area’s industrial path when it once carried the gravel from Needham that filled in Boston’s Back Bay.


Why Art?

Innovation doesn’t come just from a lab or a computer screen or an engineering bench, it emerges when people blend the arts and sciences to create something entirely new.

With that in mind, the N-Squared Innovation District is working with the Newton Upper Falls community and the artists' collective Studios Without Walls to develop Beyond Boundaries.

The project features 15 sculptures along a portion of the mile-long greenway. The free exhibition opens June 25 with a celebration in Pettee Square and will remain on view through Sept. 9.
