New Artscape Instillation!

New Artscape Instillation!

Come and check out the newly installed Artscape sculpture on the First Street Commons! Karl Saliter of Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut designed this piece, entitled “Making Money.” The artist describes it as a glimpse into the efforts and energy put into the physical creation of paper money. Saliter writes, “the hundred of welds which hold this piece together mirror the widespread beliefs in money, which grant it value.”

This instillation was made possible through the Art + Industry grant awarded to the Office of Cultural Development. Art + Industry celebrates innovative works of outdoor public art that focus on early industries in the Upper Housatonic Valley, which encompasses central and south Berkshire County in western Massachusetts and northern Litchfield County in Connecticut.
