Seen by thousands of eyes a day at one of Boston's busiest intersections, Mehdi Ghadyanloo's giant outdoor mural is a stunning expression of optimism he hopes can lead to better understanding between his country and the United States.Painted on the side of a building, the 21-by-23-meter mural appears almost three-dimensional, as if the admirer can join the line and find out what great secret awaits above.Iranians and Americans don't really understand each other, Ghadyanloo said.Across the ocean, Lucas Cowan, the Greenway's public art curator, was already an admirer of Ghadyanloo's work."Spaces of Hope" will stay up for a year before being covered up by another mural.
