About Armenian Heritage Park on The Greenway
Armenian Heritage Park welcomes all in celebration of the immigrant experience, and graces the public space with design features to engage all ages to come together on common ground.

The Abstract Sculpture, a split rhomboid dodecahedron, commemorates the immigrant experience.  Annually, the Abstract Sculpture is reconfigured, symbolic of all who were pulled apart from their country of origin and came to these Massachusetts shores, establishing themselves in new and different ways.  In early April, a crane lifts and pulls apart the two halves of the split rhomboid dodecahedron, made of steel and aluminum, to create a new sculptural configuration.

 "...the Abstract Sculpture shows how public art becomes a part of the city...an example of public art that is both permanent and alive."  - Joanna Weiss, The Boston Globe

The Abstract Sculpture sits atop a Reflecting Pool; its waters wash over its sides and re-emerge as a single jet of water at the Labyrinth's center.  The Sculpture is dedicated to lives lost during the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923 and all genocides that have followed.

The Labyrinth, a circular winding path paved in grass and inlaid stone, celebrates life's journey. A single jet of water marks its center, representing hope and rebirth. Art, Science, Service and Commerce are etched around its circle in tribute to contributions made to American life and culture. This is the only Labyrinth on public land in the Northeast.

At the crossroads of residents, business and tourist footpaths, the Park is between Faneuil Hall Marketplace and Christopher Columbus Park.

Armenian Heritage Park and its endowed funds to support the annual Reconfiguration of the Abstract Sculpture, Public Programs, Najarian Lecture on Human Rights at Faneuil Hall and the Park's ongoing care and maintenance is a gift to the City of Boston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts from Armenian-Americans.
