Our Fifth Annual Public Art Exhibition, Beyond Walls
Beyond Walls is the Town's annual, award-winning public art exhibition. The show takes place at one of our most popular parks, Robbins Park, and will be on display May 1, 2019 through January 31, 2020. This environment provides an accessible and beautiful setting for public artworks.
Of the 30 submissions representing 9 different states, The Public Art Committee selected 7 sculptures by 6 artists for the 2019-20 show. Artists include Jarod Charzewski, Robert Doster, Scott Froschauer, Cathy Perry, Richard Pitts and Robert Porreca.
Public art enthusiasts joined us in celebrating the 5th edition of Beyond Walls on Saturday, June 1, at 3:30 p.m. Attendees cooled off with a glass of lemonade and walked through the park with Marisa Pascucci, Curator, as she shared stories about each of the artists and the works they have on view.
