Exhibition Location: Sculpture Park

Craig Colorusso’s Sun Boxes, a temporary sound installation, will be in the Sculpture Park on August 6 from 11 am–4 pm. Sun Boxes, a solar powered sound project, is comprised of twenty speakers, operating independently, each powered by the sun via solar panels. Colorusso has preloaded recorded guitar notes into each “sun box” so that the collective notes create harmonious chords—continually overlapping and evolving.

Listen to WBUR's Andrea Shea chat with artist Craig Colorusso and Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs Nick Capasso: Artist's Musical Installation Rises with the Sun.
