The Boston Museum of Art’s new wings mural is a striking contrast to the city’s traditional architecture.
Designed by local artists B.D. Breen and Daniel Breen, the artwork includes an intricate arrangement of three contrasting wings, which, when combined, form a single wing.
“The wings in this work are a reflection of the city as a whole,” Breen said in a statement.
“They are the symbol of the Boston that has endured for centuries.
Their beauty and grace make them a beacon for the city and an important piece in our ongoing efforts to inspire the future.”
The wings were unveiled on Monday, and they were unveiled in the context of the museum’s annual Wings of Summer celebration.
The exhibition is an annual celebration of the wings, with more than 400 pieces displayed.
The work is part of the ongoing B.M.A.F.R. art project, which aims to explore art and design through collaboration between art and architecture, the arts and education.
“We are honored to partner with B.B. Brexler and Daniel on this ambitious project,” said Daniel Beren, the museum curator.
“Our partnership brings together the diverse disciplines of design, architecture, sculpture, film and media.
We have created a remarkable and unique piece that will make a difference in Boston’s future.”
For Breen himself, the wings offer an opportunity to explore a subject that has fascinated him for decades: “Art is not just about painting,” he said.
“It is about connecting with other people’s experiences.
And this is the kind of art that is about people.”
The new wings, in fact, represent a new approach to the museum.
“I think of it as a way to make a statement about the art in our collection, as well as to create a space for collaboration between artists and the art community,” Beren said.
Beren and Breen hope the new wings will serve as a model for the next phase of the B. M.A.’s design work.
“There is so much potential for collaboration,” he added.
“And so many of the other pieces in the collection, it’s very much a question of who will build it, what are the needs, what is the vision, and how can we do that.”
Breen is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Chicago’s Fine Arts Department, where he has worked as a teacher, curator and artist.
His work has been exhibited in the Chicago Public Library, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the American Institute of Architects, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Breslau is the artist responsible for the Boston mural, and she has a long history of working with art, design and architecture.
In the mid-1990s, BresLau and her husband, artist Steve, took on a mural project at the Boston Art Museum, a collaboration that was commissioned by the museum after Bresler discovered the Boston Museum had been using a large mural of the work of Breslik.
“Steve and I realized that this mural had the potential to create an iconic piece of Boston art,” Breslain said.
The mural was later turned into a larger mural at the New Museum, and in 2004, it was placed on display at the Breslicuze Art Center.
Brien Breen’s first solo work was created in 2009, a six-by-eight-foot piece in the form of a “tetris-like” shape that is now on display in the Breen Art Center’s “Tetris” collection.
The Breens have been involved in other collaborative projects in the Boston area.
Brennan Breen was a founding member of the New York Metropolitan Opera’s Chicago Opera, and he designed a new orchestra for the Metropolitan Opera in New Jersey.
Bregan Breen served as an assistant to the legendary art director George Barris, and Breslovas work was featured in the documentary “Gotham City” in 2005.
Brie Breen has worked on several projects with the Berenbreens, including the Museum’s “Museums” collection, the “Venture Capital Fund” art collection, and various art installations in the Museum collections.
The Boston B.O.M.’s wings are the first of several new B.P.A.-funded art projects, including a $4 million sculpture by renowned New York artist Andy Warhol that is currently being built in downtown Boston.
Banners and artwork from a number of B. P.
A-funded art programs have also been installed throughout the city.
The Museum of Fine Arts has also commissioned artwork from the Brien and Breynas, including one that is located in the basement of the Brooklyn Museum, where the Benslavas’ work has already been on view for more than three years.
