Boston: Commonwealth Avenue Mall Sculptures Map

Commonwealth Avenue Sculptures Boston’s Commonwealth Avenue finds its 19th century inspiration in the boulevards of Europe. The centerpiece of the elegant Back Bay, the avenue is 200 feet wide, with generous carriageways and sidewalks. The gracious central walkway, called the Mall, is enlivened with sculpture and landscaping. Installation of statuary began in 1865 and continues to this day. Because nearly all of the sculptures face east toward the Public Garden, this walk is devised to allow you to go west and approach each frontally, as sculptors meant them to be seen.
