Letter: Fishy entries
I am disappointed in the winners of the recent sculpture competition to be placed on the entrance route to our town. Questions:
What does a fish on a post possibly have to do with the culture or history of Greenfield?
For that matter, What does the image of fish swimming upstream have to do with Greenfield (The Bob Markey entry)? The fish ladders and the major fish waterways are located in Turners Falls.
Sorry to be a curmudgeon, but both “winners” are visually unappealing, historically insignificant losers.
This is what comes of appointing jurors, none of whom come from visual backgrounds.
Ask me the next time! I have been a producing-artist for decades.
