Artist to help NH city celebrate its 250th
CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - A local artist is working on a 40-foot sculpture to help celebrate the 250th anniversary of Claremont, N.H., next year.
Ernest Montenegro tells the Eagle Times (http://bit.ly/1mNmn4i) the steel structure will reflect a downtown footbridge. It also will serve as a solar clock and feature cutout metal hands highlighting people’s contributions.
Montenegro is no stranger to public art. He has installed nine of his pieces in other communities, including a sculpture he did for the Friends of the City of Manchester.
The work, titled “handsthenandnow” will show how the many people came together to contribute to the life of the city.
Settled in 1762, the city was incorporated as a town in October 1764 and it became a city in 1947.
