Soaring Public Art Graces Boston’s Greenway
I love public art exhibits; they add much joy and surprise to those who see them, regardless of whether the viewer previously knew about the piece(s). One such piece is the new installation by Janet Echelman called ‘As If It Were Already Here’, installed over Boston’s downtown Rose F. Kennedy Greenway a week ago.
I took a walk last week to see it – luckily I had my camera with me at work.
I cannot describe it better than Yvonne Abraham did in the Boston Globe story she wrote.
As with much three-dimensional art, it looks different from each vantage point. I have a feeling it also looks different at different times of the day. I viewed it at 1 pm when the sun was yet to be hidden by skyscrapers.
It gives the appearance of undulating without moving much.
Some of the surrounding buildings reflect its presence.
If you work in Boston and are having a bad day, go out and spend some time looking up. It will refresh your mood.
I wish I could see it from inside one of the nearby office buildings, or even from a rooftop. That could be even more spectacular.
This sculpture will hang over the Greenway until October.
