Take a photo and share your masterpiece with the world

You may have noticed a familiar sight in the Public Garden these past few days: people snapping photos of friends, family members, even pets with the help of large picture frames along the lagoon edge. On November 2, the Friends of the Public Garden installed three frames in the Garden that swivel 360 degrees, allowing you to capture your own unique masterpieces. This year, we’ve changed things up a bit and installed a frame at a lower height to accommodate your littler ones, including dogs! After snapping your photos, please post them online and tag #FOPG (find us on Instagram at @friendsofthepublicgarden) so even more people can enjoy your work of art. There are two frames on the Beacon Street side of the lagoon and one on the Boylston Street end.

The frames will be in the Garden until mid-December 2017, weather permitting.

In the fall of 2014, the Friends installed three frames in the Public Garden as part of a visibility campaign. The following year, the frames found a temporary home on Boston Common. They were immensely popular, with hundreds posing inside the frames, as well as using them to capture beautiful vistas of the parks. The frames took a vacation to the Eustis Estate in Milton over the summer, and now they are back in the Public Garden again.

Stop and take a photo!
