Downtown Stamford is sporting 37 sculptures from regional artists, as part of the Stamford Downtown Special Services District’s outdoor summer 2020 sculpture exhibit, “Art Collective,” Art in Public Places.
The unique collection of sculptures range from steel maple syrup barrels cut, shaped and welded together to depict endangered polar bears called The Discarded; junk yard scraps of steel rods and tangled barb wire sculpted creating a Trash wild woman; to a simple metal sculpture “Tulip Bulb” by Emily Teall, of Riverside.
A way to enjoy the many creations is by taking a self-guided tour and listening to an Otocast created by the DSSD that gives a narrative on each sculpture and bio on each artist.
As part of the Otocast, while walking through downtown, the free audio tour offers up suggestions on downtown eateries and shopping. For detail information of the Art Collective visit Stamford-Downtown.com.
