The Town of Putnam and Putnam Arts Council are having an “AFFAIR” (A LOVE OF ART AFFAIR).
A two month long “Sculpture Affair” that will take place in the Business District and along the Putnam River Trail. Artist Dale Rogers, the man who created our present sculptures, Bird in Hand (Rotary Park)- 4 People (River Trail) and Big Dog (entrance to Dog Park) has installed a display that makes the “Sculpture Affair” an artistic collection of more than 20 sculptures for people to enjoy while walking in our community.
There are woodland animals for the youngsters, symbolic pieces of love for the young at heart and sculptures that make you stop and think while you roam the fanciful streets of Putnam. Families and friends are walking to stay healthy during these unprecedented times. What better way to spend a day than to walk Putnam and see the beautiful, solid, large 3-D sculptures that combine the love of abstract geometrics with organic lines and figurative appeal.
The best way to enjoy the sculptures is to use the “Sculpture Affair” Map/Guide that you can acquire at the Putnam restaurants and businesses. Also you can go to the WINY 1350 am / 97.1 fm Facebook page along with the Discover Putnam and Town of Putnam Facebook pages. Websites to find the guide are winyradio.com, putnamct.org and discoverputnam.com.
