We are happy to support the Greater Meredith Program’s (GMP) Sculpture Walk with a $5000 contribution that will help maintain and update the display.
As part of its mission to continue to beautify the Meredith community, the Greater Meredith Program began the Sculpture Walk project in the Fall of 2012. What began with just two sculptures displayed in the Courtyard on Main Street was expanded this year to a sculpture walk containing twenty-four unique works scattered throughout the downtown Meredith community. The artists participating were jury selected. Their pieces will be on display for up to 18 months and then be replaced on a rotating basis. A map and guide for the Meredith Sculpture Walk can be found on the Greater Meredith Program’s website, www.greatermeredithprogram.com, as well as at various locations along the walk.
“We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of interest and support from artists and the community,” said Elizabeth Lapham, Executive Director of the Greater Meredith Program. “It brings us so much pride to see residents and visitors pausing to admire the beauty of each of these pieces set against the backdrop of our wonderful downtown Meredith.”
The Greater Meredith Program (GMP) is a non-profit community economic development organization dedicated to enhancing economic vitality, historical and cultural heritage, and town-wide beautification.
