'Arts Connecting Community' sculpture in Merrimac

MERRIMAC — Did you miss the chance to attend the unveiling of the Pentucket Arts Foundation’s “Arts Connecting Community” Public Art Project in May?

It’s not too late. The artwork is touring the libraries of the Pentucket community this summer.

After spending the month of June at the GAR Memorial Library in West Newbury, the 7-foot sculpture is on display now through the end of July in the magazine room at the Merrimac Public Library, 86 West Main St., Merrimac.

The exhibit can be viewed during regular library hours: Mondays and Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Fridays 10 a.m to 2 p.m.

Visitors can also check out the viewbook accompanying the sculpture to see all the individual donations that went into making one unified piece of art. The final leg of the tour concludes next month with a visit to the Langley-Adams Library in Groveland before the sculpture takes up permanent residence in the Pentucket High School Library this fall.

The “Arts Connecting Community” Public Art Project was made possible with support from the Institution for Savings, the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation, and the Groveland, Merrimac, and West Newbury Cultural Councils.
