A Grand Day Installing

Nara Park sculpture

Blog_Piece_RockSean wore waders, but the pond ice held and he did a quick and expert job of bolting our new sculpture  to its rock in Nara Park, Acton, Mass. Joyce Audy Zarins constructed the beautiful steel animals and structure, which turns gently in the wind. I designed the birds and animals using the park’s swallows, heron, frogs, and sunfish as models. The piece, in mild steel, will weather and attain its final chestnut-brown color over the winter.  I’ll check back again to see how the color progresses. Commissioned by the Acton-Boxborough Cultural Council, the official unveiling will be in spring, 2014.
