A street artist known as JR pasted this serene image onto the blue glass of Boston’s Hancock Tower. (Yes, I know it’s no longer officially supposed to be called the Hancock Tower, but try to stop me.) The art piece takes perfect advantage of the sometimes calm, sometimes shimmery water-like surface of the building. I got a chance to view it from Boylston Street earlier this week, as the day was approaching the golden hour. What a treat. It’s supposed to be on view there only through October. If you’re in Boston, get out and see it. I found just a little bit about the artist in this article.
Another lovely Boston public art piece is coming down after October as well. It’s Janet Echelman’s “As If It Were Already Here” split-rope sculpture, currently suspended over the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Here’s a fun drone’s eye view video that features the sculpture.
