The individual art pieces now have name plates depicting the title of the piece and the artist. This was good to find. I now know that 'the bear' has a name: Ursus.

Town Administrator Jeff Nutting welcomed everyone and gave thanks to Adrianna Kelly who had the original vision for the park. Linda and Ian Kabat of the Franklin Art Center who took over leadership of the project when Adrianna left Franklin. The DPW who did the work. The Franklin Cultural Council who provides some funding. Rep Jeff Roy who obtained some state money for lighting in the park. And to all the artists and volunteers who helped to make this happen.

As there may be some who don't know where the Sculpture Park is located. It is on Panther Way next to the Police Station. For those long time Franklinites, it was the location of the old town pool.
