Mural of Mysterious Figure on Boston Building Set to Come Down

The mural will be taken down Wednesday

The mural located on the building at 200 Clarendon Street in Boston, formerly known as the Hancock Tower, is set to come down Wednesday.

According to a tweet sent out by the French artist JR, the mural will start to be taken down on Wednesday.

The mural appeared back in September and was only a temporary installment by the French artist.

JR added a little bit to the mural everyday throughout September, October, and November, until it covered six floors of the building.

According to Bryan Koop, executive Vice President at Boston Properties, the art installation was "initially planned to be on display for six weeks, which was extended to seven months due to positive feedback from the general public." 

Koop also said, "We are thrilled to have had JR temporarily use the building as a canvas for his thoughtful piece and thrilled to be engaging Bostonians in a conversation about public art." 

JR is famous for traveling the world and putting up mysterious works of art.
