Oh no!

On Sunday, it was reported on twitter that the floating pyramid – a public art display – in the Fort Point Channel came loose and was stuck against the wall. Neighborhood volunteers secured and tied it down.  The artist – sculptor Don Eyles – was also on hand at the scene.

The sculpture was made to resemble cobblestone to signify the history of the neighborhood.  “Consider the history that has passed along the cobbled streets of Boston—all the men and women, famous or unremembered, who have walked and rode here, crossed our bridges, gathered in our public spaces, imported and exported, bought and sold—always with granite cobblestones beneath their feet and wheels,” said Eyles when the public art was put on display back in 2014. 

Eventually, the pyramid will be floated back to its original home in the middle of the Channel.
