Corner of Boylston and Dartmouth to be closed to traffic for the Production Scheduled FOR SATURDAY, April 12, 7:00 a.m.

Sports Illustrated @SINow invites Bostonians to be part of an historic cover photo shoot featuring Boston Strong. The production is scheduled for Saturday, April 12th, 7:00am, at the corner of Boylston and Dartmouth … the finish line of the 2014 Boston Marathon. Sports Illustrated will make this shoot the cover of its next issue which hits newsstands April 16. Fans are asked to wear their Boston gear and join Mayor Marty Walsh, city first responders, neighbors and friends for this celebration of resiliency and pride one year after the marathon bombing.

Said SI Managing Editor Chris Stone: “Boston Strong is a story about people, ordinary people doing extraordinary things, ordinary people doing ordinary things. SI’s creative director, Chris Hercik, believed the best way to tell this story a year later was to bring all those people, or as many aspossible, into a single photo at the finish line. If you look at last year’s cover photo, you see all that empty space all the way down Boylston Street filled by smoke and that backdrop of chaos and destruction. This year’s photo fills those spaces with the Bostonians who wrote the Boston Strong story.”
