Somerville sidewalk art pops up to mark where Obama lived while at Harvard

The 44th president leased a basement apartment at 365 Broadway

An impromptu bit of public art is on display on the sidewalk outside of 365 Broadway in Somerville. That is the building where one Barack Obama lived from 1988 to 1991 while a student at Harvard Law over in Cambridge.

A Curbed Boston reader alerted us to the painted work, which went up in advance of the Open Studios fest in Somerville earlier this month.
