Recap: 2021 outdoor exhibitions in Copley Square and Nubian Square

In May and June 2021, the award winning images from our annual Pictures of the Year Contest were on display in an outdoor exhibit in Copley Square for two weeks from May 24th to June 7th and in Nubian Square from June 7th to June 21st.

Our members’ award-winning work was displayed on ten photo cubes along the Boylston Street sidewalk (that runs beside the park in Copley Square) and then again in Judge Gourdin Square, the park next to the B2 Police Department outside of Nubian Square.

The BPPA’s Pictures of the Year Exhibition was produced in collaboration with Photoville and GBH.

Photoville’s Photo Structures are a customizable, modular, and transportable system to exhibit photography indoors and outdoors. For more information visit photoville.com.
