FIGMENT is an explosion of creative energy. It’s a free, annual celebration of participatory art and culture where everything is possible. For one weekend each summer, we transform The Rose Kennedy Greenway into a large-scale collaborative artwork – and then it’s gone.

FREE! FIGMENT is a free, non-profit event, and we do not accept corporate sponsorships.
What to Bring:
Whatever you need for a day of fun. Consider: sunscreen, hat, and your imagination!
What to Expect:
Art and activities in every medium available… especially the art and activities that YOU bring!
To make sure you and all other visitors have a fun and safe experience, please keep the following in mind:
It is NOT SAFE to CLIMB the art
YOUR child = YOUR responsibility
TREAT the art like it was your HOME
It is NEVER “just you” doing it!
THINK before you ACT
Make the art look even BETTER for the NEXT VISITOR

LEAVE NO TRACE: We adhere to a “Leave No Trace” ethic, and ask you to do the same. If you bring it with you, either bring it back or make sure it gets into a trash receptacle.
NO TRANSACTIONS: One of our goals is to create a social and creative experience uninterrupted by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. FIGMENT does not sell anything on the Greenway, and does not allow commerce of any kind.
