Post-Thanksgiving Windsor Center Walking Tour Features Amazing Local Sculpture
On Saturday, November 25, 2017 from 9 AM to 10:30 AM, walk off that Thanksgiving turkey and pie and join us for an invigorating Windsor Center Sculpture Walking Tour!
Meet Windsor Historical Society director Christine Ermenc at the Windsor Art Center at 40 Mechanic Street for an in-depth look at the sculptures, monuments, and markers decorating Broad Street Green and Windsor Center.
Discover the stories behind Lon Pelton’s Moly Mosquito and Into the Future sculptures. And did you know that Broad Street Green’s iconic eagle was sculpted by Evelyn Longman Batchelder, the first woman sculptor to be elected a full member of the National Academy of Design in 1919? Many Windsor residents have never noticed the New Deal-era tobacco reliefs by Nena Jackson De Brennecke located above the lock boxes in the Windsor Center Post Office.
These delights and more historic and modern details will be highlighted on this ¾ mile walk. Bad weather cancels this tour, which is appropriate for ages 10 and up.
$6 adults, $5 seniors and students, $4 members
