Presented in collaboration with FOG x FLO: FUJIKO NAKAYA ON THE EMERALD NECKLACE

Venture out in the fog with Sherlock Holmes, and listen to an original series of free, short audio plays featuring the world’s most famous detective. Written by Huntington Playwriting Fellow Walt McGough and produced by the Huntington Theatre Company, this audio play series is created in conjunction with the Huntington’s fall production of Sherlock’s Last Case. These original audio plays will respond to the environment of each of artist Fujiko Nakaya's fog installations, and follow an original storyline across all five locations. The mysterious 19th century atmosphere of Sherlock Holmes crosses paths with the creative work of the 19th century park's original designer, landscape architect Frederick Olmsted. 


Fog x FLO: Fujiko Nakaya on the Emerald Necklace will introduce park visitors to the internationally renowned “fog sculpture” of Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya. Her installations have been designed to complement and enhance Frederick Law Olmsted’s (FLO) enduring waterways and landscapes. Nakaya’s “climate responsive,” shape-shifting, pure water forms invite visitors to immerse themselves in the art, experience nature anew, and appreciate the vital role of the Emerald Necklace in our city’s history, present, and future.

Fog x FLO will be showcased at the following five locations, and will be free and open to the public daily through October 31st, from 8am to 7pm in September and 8am to 6pm in October: 

  • Fog x Canopy, Clemente Field Path, Back Bay Fens
  • Fog x Island, Leverett Pond, Olmsted Park, Brookline
  • Fog x Beach, Jamaica Pond
  • Fog x Hill, Hunnewell Hillside, Arnold Arboretum
  • Fog x Ruins, Overlook Ruins, Franklin Park
