Artist Janet Echelman created this sculpture “As If It Were Already Here” to imitate history over Boston’s Rose Kennedy Greenway. Weighing approximately one ton and created with over half a million knots, the colored banding eludes to the six traffic lanes that once crowded the neighborhood. If you want to catch a glimpse of this display, it’s on view through October 2015. Click here to read more about Echelman's project and the Boston Public Arts program.
