‘After Alex’ by Boro selected for Inaugural ‘New Canaan Sculpture Trail’
The Carriage Barn Arts Center and New Canaan Land Trust are sponsoring a significant outdoor art installation to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day (April 22, 2020). This program will advance the missions of both organizations which are “to foster a connection between the community and its natural resources” and “to enrich the community through exhibitions, education and cultural experiences.”
OLD LYME — The New Canaan Land Trust (NCLT) and the Carriage Barn Arts Center recently announced the eight artists whose work has been selected for their ‘first of a kind’ outdoor public art exhibition, the New Canaan Sculpture Trail. One of those selected from the more than 70 submissions made is Gilbert Boro, whose residence and studio are both located on Lyme St. in Old Lyme.
Asked how he felt about his selection, Boro told LymeLine, “We are excited and, of course, honored to be participating in the New Canaan Sculpture Trail. Their goal is to connect audiences in a united call for creativity, innovation, and ambition as a way of recognizing the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.” He added, “Considering the environmental, social and political disorder all about us, I believe that these public art displays bring some semblance of beauty to all of us who take the time to look.” - LymeLine
