Captain Nemo has been following an artist's work in Brighton Center the past couple of days - specifically, at the corner of Washington and Foster. Fans of images of squirrels eating pizza would be correct in assuming they've seen this basic image before.

The city today launched what it hopes is a 15-month conversation on how to boost art in Boston. Boston Creates will:
Provide an opportunity for Boston’s many communities and neighborhoods to create a cultural blueprint highlighting Boston’s strengths and setting innovative goals for the future. We’ll look at community organizations and individual artists; cultural spaces and facilities; our cultural heritage and communities; our festivals and events; and creative industries and occupations.
They are, however, OK at the Museum of Science, the Boston Business Journal reports.
Illuminus Boston cranks up at 6 p.m. with "large-scale projections and light installations alongside immersive sound, performance, and multimedia experiences that reimagine the city at night," in the area around 540 Harrison Ave.
This will be Boston's first "Nuit Blanche" festival and will include art installations and music, film and dance performances, all running until midnight.
With some help from friends, designer Don Eyles today launched Fort Point Channel's latest floating artwork: A pyramid made of plastic blocks painted to look like the paving stones that used to line Boston streets.
Some of the neighborhood's toughest artists - and one little kid - raised the wooden beams on which the pyramid sat and it glided, more or less, into the green water below.
Eyles and a small boatload of folks then pulled the pyramid into the middle of the channel, about midway down the postal annex, and moored it in place.
Don Eyles and crew are scheduled to launch this floating pyramid from Necco Court into Fort Point Channel at 2:30 p.m. today.
