About

Creative expression is one way to share our common human experience. Northeastern’s Public Art Initiative exists to create opportunities for the members of our community and beyond to do just that in our public spaces—both physical and virtual—throughout our global campuses. We seek to inspire and be inspired. To connect with each other and our neighboring communities. To spark new ways of thinking and align around common ground.

“The language of public art is universal, with a transcendent, uniquely human power to educate, connect, and inspire.”  

President Joseph E. Aoun  

Public art is a gateway to Northeastern, reflecting the university’s global, experiential mission. Through this carefully curated selection of Public Art interventions, Northeastern has made a commitment to defining our urban campus experience through immersive, creative installations by an international group of artists.
