Ross Miller (AR 779 – Public Art Administration) is a visual artist who works to integrate art into the public landscape. Through site-based projects he seeks to encourage community conversation in outdoor spaces, and create places for private reflection within public environments. Located in publicly accessible sites – urban squares and parks, schools, subway tunnels, along highways and over city streets – these projects evolve through collaboration with residents, school and community groups, urban planners, landscape architects and other artists. The work ranges from urban and architectural scale installations to subtle and intimate pedestrian scale sculpture.
He is the artist with the Boston Schoolyard Initiative, integrating artwork into educational schoolyards; and directs the annual Ancient Fishweir Public Art Project. Current work includes permanent sculpture and lighting in the new pedestrian landscape along the Charles River under the Zakim Bridge, and a cut granite interactive water feature for Kittredge Park in Roxbury. During design and construction of the Central Artery Project he created public art master plans, and managed the planning, creation and installation of a series of public art projects.
