The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy has commissioned a new temporary artwork by Chicago-based artist and designer Matthew Hoffman, a textual narrative titled MAY THIS NEVER END.

The 4-foot x 319-foot artwork, made of bright yellow high density polyethylene, reads: “Nothing’s for keeps. Except that we must keep going. You’ll spend your entire life searching, ok? We all want to belong. So let’s all get along. Make the most, and hope. May this never end.” 

The new work is located on The Greenway between North and Clinton streets near Faneuil Hall. A MassDOT-BRA planning process is collecting community feedback on the future of the site. The Greenway Conservancy has used the site for light-touch creative programming such as photo installations on the fence and in shipping container “galleries” in partnership with the Flash Forward Festival.
