ARTmonday: Piñata-Inspired Installation at the Pru

Have you walked into the Prudential Center lately? Next time you’re at the Apple Store, cross the street and have a look. Boston-based public art organization Now + There has kicked off its 2020 season with a temporary, site-specific, and very colorful installation.

¡Provecho! by Justin Favela, which hangs from two towering windows facing Boylston Street, is joyous. The piece, inspired by piñatas is an ode to Boston’s Latinx culture. It is meant to evoke “the happiness, fulfillment, and pleasure we experience after sharing a good meal with family and friends.”

Justin Favela, a Las Vegas-based artist of Guatemala-Mexican-American heritage spoke with Afro-Latina, agitator, activist, and Boston City Councilor, Julia Mejia on The Art People podcast. Listen  here.
