Help Us Honor 25 Years at No Man’s Land
Join us for August 25 Celebration
On Wednesday, August 25 SPOKE (formerly Medicine Wheel Productions) honors its 25th anniversary at No Man’s Land, a public park and sculpture garden in South Boston’s Dorchester Heights neighborhood, with a community event beginning at 6 pm.
We’ll unveil our new public art project, a series of mosaics marking the 12 Steps of Recovery, installed along one of No Man’s Land’s stone staircases. Young people working to overcome addiction at the Gavin Foundation’s Cushing House, and the recovery-focused Ostiguy High School, have worked all summer with SPOKE artists to design and install these mosaics and are helping to organize the commemoration.
The event will honor the extraordinary 25-year history of No Man’s Land and all those who have contributed to its growth and conservation, and those we have lost along the way. We’ll thank our partners at the National Park Service (NPS), the City of Boston, and the Dorchester Heights neighborhood. SPOKE will use this gathering to publicly announce the signing of a memorandum of agreement to maintain and improve the space with NPS, which operates the adjacent Dorchester Heights National Historic Site.
The gathering will highlight the need for ongoing support to conserve this space and support public programming there that meets community needs.
WS Development has generously awarded a grant to SPOKE to partially underwrite the costs of this event. SPOKE seeks additional philanthropic support for the commemoration and the ongoing work to maintain this space for this public.
