Dedication of Path of Truth
Rotary Common Park
315 Main Street, Downtown Nashua

The public is invited to celebrate the sponsorship of Path of Truth by Garry and Joanna Clarke-Pounder. Path of Truth was created in 2009 by Sarah Mae Wasserstrum from Israel. Sarah describes her sculpture when she says, “I imagine humanity as comprised of layers.  Some layers are thicker, some more modest, all piled from the past to the future. This sculpture is but a segment of this image. It starts from within the earth holding our ancestors layers within. Some are here now. The future is to be imagined climbing to the sky.”

Saturday, May 10, 1:00 PM
Dedication of the Gallery at the Wall
Rotary Common Park
315 Main Street, Downtown Nashua

Two years after inception of the idea, the Gallery at the Wall at Nashua’s Rotary Common Park will become a reality. Mayor Donnalee Lozeau will preside at the dedication ceremony for the 180-foot wall gallery that Celebrates Nashua’s Past and Present through Art, featuring the art work of local photographer Yusuf Abudi. The park is also home to Nashua’s Reflection Garden and Labyrinth, three of the Nashua International Sculpture Symposium’s works, called Path of Truth, Steps to Respect, and Encounter, and the Nashua Holocaust Memorial.
