If you haven't noticed lately, downtown Meredith is becoming home to many hand-crafted pieces of art. From Main Street to parks along Lake Winnipesaukee,
various works of art are being displayed for everyone to enjoy. The first pieces were installed by the Greater Meredith program.
The first works of art were installed in early June, with 13 pieces now on display. If the program stays on course there will be 24 sculptures in very visible locations including Mill Falls, Main Street along with Hesky and Scenic parks. The artists participating were jury selected and their pieces will be on display for up to two years, being replaced on a rotating basis each year.
A Greater Meredith Program "jury" chose the art work to ensure that the work was not controversial and didn't have any sharp edges for safety reasons. Each sculpture will have a plaque that includes the name of the sculpture along with the artist's name and contact information. Walking maps and brochures will be made available soon and be found throughout Meredith at local shops, Town Hall, Chamber of Commerce and Mill Falls. The opening ceremony and walk is planned for July 28th.
For this artists who are looking to submit work. The next application period is in late 2015. For additional information visit Greater Meredith Program's website at www.greatermeredithprogram.com
