Many have noticed the beautiful blue sculpture in front of the school recently, and have wondered what its story is! According to art teacher Colleen McGowan, as a member of the East Hampton Arts Council, and in collaboration with the Springs Improvement Society, Loring Bolger has spearheaded "The Summer of Sculpture in Springs" project. There are eleven sculptures that will be on view within the heart of Springs throughout the summer and into the early fall. The blue sculpture in front of the school is by Phyllis Baker Hammond.
"I have been collaborating with the SIS, and Michelle Klien at the Parrish Art Museum, to create family activity cards for the students, families, and community members. These cards will introduce the artist and give art appreciators the opportunity to explore the various works of art though guided questions and activities," said Mrs. McGowan. "All of the sculptures are within walking distance to the school and will make for a great art field trip experience in the fall."

There will be a "Summer of Sculpture" reception at Ashawagh Hall on Sunday, May 29th. Please click on the flyer below to view more information!
