Roxbury Branch Public Art Projects

The City commissioned and restored several public artworks to complement the renovation of the Roxbury Branch of the Boston Public Library.

The City of Boston completed a $17.2 million renovation of the Roxbury Library Branch in October 2020. The City commissioned two new public art projects through the Percent for Art program:

  • "R-O-X-B-U-R-Y", by Joe Wardwell in collaboration with poet Nakia Hill and youth from 826 Boston’s Youth Literary Advisory Board, and
  • "Turmoil", by Jeremy "Sobek" Harrison, located in the library's main entrance.
