S.O.S: Safety Orange Swimmers

The newest Fort Point Channel public art installment is guaranteed to turns heads. 20 floating, orange people hanging onto to inner tubes floating down the channel. SOS Safety Orange Swimmers will replace the floating sheep on October 14th and will be drifting in the waters near the Children’s Museum for six weeks.

The public art display is created by artists Ann Hirsch and Jeremy Angier, of A + J Art and Design and was chosen by the Fort Point Artist Community (FPAC). The creation of the orange swimmers were inspired by the global refugee crisis.

The launch of the installation coincides with the Fort Point Open Studios which begins Friday, October 14th – October 16th. So be on the lookout!
