    Fiber sculpture will be suspended over Greenway

    Almost 100 artists from around the world applied, but next spring, it will be Janet Echelman who has her sculpture installed on the Rose Kennedy Greenway. The artist, who has a studio in Brookline and has done projects from California to Lithuania, will create a sculpture made of knotted fiber suspended hundreds of feet over a section of the Greenway. The work, which will connect existing buildings, will be on view through the fall of 2015. It will cost about $1 million in total, with half of that money coming from the Richard and Susan Smith Family Foundation. Just over $100,000 will come from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New England Fund for the Arts.
