Sculpture unveiling ceremony Friday
Wilton Center will get its third piece of sculpture as part of the municipal sculpture program begun last year.
A short ceremony celebrating the installation of Carole Eisner’s welded metal sculpture Konnected will take place Friday, June 26, 11 a.m. on River Road opposite Stop & Shop. The public is invited.
The sculpture by Eisner, who lives in Weston, will be on loan through the collaboration of the artist and Silvermine Arts Center. The artist, who will join in the celebration on Friday, has an extensive portfolio of work over four decades that has been displayed in numerous public parks, corporate plazas, cultural centers and museums throughout the Northeast, as well as in Belgium, France, United Kingdom and Japan.
The town’s sculpture program brought Nurture by Peter Rubino to Wilton last December, and secured Gifford Proctor’s Valley Forge Washington for placement in the Clune Center as soon as funds are raised for its relocation.
