Chicago artist Matthew Hoffman’s “May This Never End”—a 319-foot-long text artwork that debuted along Boston’s Rose Kennedy Greenway in 2016—has a new home, the City of Boston reports.
The yellow letters read “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.” After being on view on a fence between North and Clinton Streets, they had been in storage since May 2017. Now with a grant from the Harvard Allston Public Realm Flexible Fund, which is overseen by the Boston Planning & Development Agency, the Boston Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture has reinstalled it on Lincoln Street in Boston’s Allston neighborhood, between Franklin Street and Eric Road.
