Brewer Fountain stands near the corner of Park and Tremont Streets in Boston, Massachusetts, by Park Street Station. The 22-foot-tall 15,000-pound (6,800 kg) bronze fountain, cast in Paris, was a gift to the city by Gardner Brewer. It began to function for the first time on June 3, 1868. It is a copy of the original, featured at the 1855 Paris World Fair, designed by French artist Michel Joseph Napoléon Liénard.
At least sixteen other copies exist, including one on Av. Cordoba y Cerrito in Buenos Aires and in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil.http://www.e-monumen.net/index.php?option=com_monumen&monumenTask=monumenDetails&catid=7&monumenId=646&Itemid=19http://www.publicartaroundtheworld.com/Ornamental_Fountain_Tacna.html The fountain is decorated with the figures of Neptune, Amphitrite (Neptune's wife), and Acis and Galatea, a couple from Greek mythology. It fell into disrepair and finally stopped functioning entirely in 2003. A major repair project began in 2009. After a year-long $640,000 off-site restoration led by sculpture conservator Joshua Craine of Daedalus Inc., it was re-dedicated on May 26, 2010.
