A+J Art+Design is a multidisciplinary collaboration between artists Ann Hirsch and Jeremy Angier. We share a commitment to site-specificity, interactivity and community engagement. We do extensive research and intensively collaborate in the service of the community and the site's history, current identity, and future aspirations. We believe that public art can provoke and entice while inspiring civic engagement. We offer capabilities in traditional object making and digital visualization and prototyping.
Ann has completed numerous public art commissions of scale across the U.S. In 2013, she gained wide recognition for the Bill Russell Legacy Project at Boston City Hall Plaza, a public artwork that is part sculpture and part interactive playground. Other recent commissions include large format bronze wall sculptures for the east entry to Patriot Plaza at Sarasota National Cemetery, FL and Grand Rapids Community Legends, MI. She teaches at Rhode Island School of Design and in 2017 was an Artist in Residence for the City of Boston.
Jeremy is a Somerville artist focusing on representational painting and sculpture. You can see some of his work at tuttiputti.com. He also heads machinegraphics, a 3D animation firm which creates animations and visualizations for documentary films and museum exhibits. Jeremy teaches figure drawing in the Boston area.
