Pittsfield Garden Tour to Donate Sculpture to City

Mayor Daniel Bianchi is pleased to announce that the Pittsfield Garden Tour is donating a 14 foot high sculpture to the city of Pittsfield, to be placed in the First Street Common.

The Pittsfield Garden Tour is a local committee that started in 1996 that organizes community tours of private gardens and has shown over 100 gardens in Pittsfield to help promote the area’s aesthetic appeal and community involvement. The funding for the sculpture was raised via ticket sales and fundraisers from the Garden Tour and the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.

The sculpture is titled “Infinite Dance” and was designed and crafted by award winning artist Carol Gold, whose inspiration for the piece was taken from the First Street Common’s site design. Gold is a member of the National Sculptors’ Guild and her designs have been featured at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, as well as multiple public commissions in California, and Colorado. She has been critically acclaimed for her work by the National Sculpture Society and North American Sculpture Exhibition.

The sculpture will be featured in a dedication and unveiling ceremony in Pittsfield’s First Street Common on October 12th at 3:00 pm, in which Mayor Bianchi, parks commission members, city council members, and other public officials will be in attendance.
