A Giant Picnic

 If you've been away a lot this summer and have yet to see Os Gemeos' public artwork in Dewey Square, head down there during these last halcyon days of summer. While you're enjoying a grassy pause between the skyscrapers, have a thought for the Occupy Boston movement. Come September 30th, if anyone wants to organize a one year anniversary Giant Picnic sit-in, we're game.

Os Gemeos also left their mark on the Revere Hotel at Stuart Street and collaborated with artists Caleb Neelon, Coyo and Rize on a mural at Mama Gina's Pizza in Union Square, Somerville.

Their white-cube show at the ICA is worth your time too.
