    Random Swings of Joy was a 2011 project that triggered copycats across the nation when the idea went viral. Since the Awesome Foundation, that put up the $1000 grant in L.A. for Jeff Waldman to start the project, originated in Boston, it's not inconceivable that a few swings showed up here too.

    It was probably hung in 2011 and forgotten for the past 3 years.
