The MBTA says it has something for artist Mary Beams: The 19 murals on wood panels she created for the Green Line platform at Government Center. Workers have carefully removed the art to make way for the new station, but won't be putting them back in.
If you are Mary Beams or you know how to locate her, please let the MBTA know by contacting Marggie Lackner, MBTA Director of Design & Architecture at [email protected]. If we are unable to reach Mary Beams, we will store the artworks but cannot guarantee that we will keep them beyond ninety days.
A T spokesman says the murals, each about 4 feet by 8 feet, were probably installed in the 1960s.
