Restoring the Kendall Sound Sculptures

Built by Boston artist Paul Matisse, the 3 sound sculptures at the Kendall T station is designed with the idea of “music brings together the people, allowing them to make eye contact and exchange a few words, something they otherwise might be scared to do.” The 3 sculptures, named Pythagoras, Kepler, and Galileo, were installed in the station in 1987 but have been quieted by disrepair. Recently, the Kendall Band Preservation Society, a group made up mostly of MIT students began repairing the sculptures and hopes to have the Kendall sculptures working again by winter.
