After much deliberation and with almost 40 names to choose from, the Acton-Boxboro Cultural Council, sponsor of my latest outdoor sculpture, voted on the name Heron’s Dream. Acton kindergarten student, Calvin Miller, chose this name “Because the heron stands still while the other animals zip by around him.”
Calvin is shown with State Rep. Jamie Eldridge, receiving his official citation at the opening on June 1. My co-artist, Joyce Audy Zarins, is seated in the front row with her granddaughter.
Nara Park is officially open for the season, and the sculpture is on view in the catch basin at the stone bridge—heron, frog, and all. I’ll post more photos as the summer goes on.
