Artist-painted tables to bring Aesop’s fables to waterfront park

Local artists are bringing their talents to the waterfront starting June 1, with Aesop’s Tables,  an outdoor exhibit featuring 25 painted picnic tables illustrating Aesop’s fables, such as The Boy Who Cried Wolf, and the Tortoise and the Hare.

The summer-long installation, courtesy of the city’s Art in Public Places program, invites visitors to enjoy light-hearted lessons, laughter and conversations on the waterfront, along with nightly music and pop-up performances, storytelling, poetry readings, games and interactive programming.
