The Town of Sandwich, via the Glass Town Cultural District, invites artists or artist teams to apply to create a temporary (3 year) public artwork to complement the historic downtown and Sandwich Glass Town Cultural District.
The Glass Town Cultural District is a two mile, walkable designation in and around the historic downtown district of Sandwich, Massachusetts.
The sculpture will be situated at the intersection of two busy streets, on the grassy area of the adjacent historic Dexter Grist Mill. The installation is intended to be welcoming to the community, while also having a civic presence. The sculpture will be constructed of durable materials, but incorporating a prominent glass element, in part or in its entirety.
The landscaped area at the intersection of Main Street and Rte. 130 will connect the neighborhood to the historic district and ideally be interactive and have a solar lighting component.
