Artists will be provided a winged foot cut-out of Veritek. The winged feet will be approximately 2 feet wide by 3-foot-high exterior art installations. They will be mounted to metal poles and rest at eye level. Designs should be appropriate for all ages. The artwork will be on display outdoors mid-March through the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2024.
The Boston Marathon is the oldest marathon in the world. Hopkinton serves as the start time for the event and sees over 200,000 visitors and runners in the days leading up to the event and the day of this famous marathon. The designs will be on display in the plaza where the start line of the race is held.
The Boston Marathon Winged Feet project is a fundraiser for two non-profit organizations: Hopkinton Center for the Arts and the 26.2 Foundation. The artwork will be auctioned off after the running of the Marathon to help raise funds for these two organizations.
