The Herd

Surface Imaging partnered with Boston based artist Andy Li on a public installation project titled The Herd. This project consists of several large-scale fabric banners, printed with text, on display in Boston’s Chin Park until January 2022.


The Herd is centered around 2021 being the year of the Ox. In some mythology, the Ox was sent from the heavens to assist humankind and work with them to prevent famine. This year, the Ox has arrived during a very difficult time for the world. With the New Year, the Ox carries hope through determination, honesty, and patience. The Herd was envisioned to create a serene and unifying environment in Chin Park to remind us that, like a herd of oxen, we are in this together.
