UPDATE: BROAD REACH PLAY SCULPTURE FUNDRAISING GOAL $15,000 BY MAY 1

The Town of Chestertown is excited to report that $100,000 of the $139,000 goal has been raised for Chestertown’s first public interactive play sculpture, “Broad Reach.” While private fundraising by local arts advocates continues, the Town has set a public goal of $15,000 by May 1, 2017. If you value public art, please do your part!

Your donation in any amount can be made online at the GoFundMe Broad Reach page, which can be accessed from the Town of Chestertown?s web page. Donations can also be made by check to the Town of Chestertown, earmarked with “Broad Reach donation.” Charitable contributions to the Town of Chestertown are tax-deductible under section 170(c)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Designed by Baltimore-based artist David Hess, Broad Reach consists of three dynamic forms, a stainless steel sail and breaking barrel wave with grassy berms simulating the waves of a passing ship. Hess’s design was selected for its interactive qualities and because it successfully incorporates three themes – art, history, and environment – that were identified in the Chestertown Public Arts Master Plan.

The sculpture will be dedicated in May 2017 in honor of Alex Castro, who headed the public art selection committee and who has been a tireless advocate for the arts in Chestertown.

Funding for Broad Reach is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts Our Town Program, the Town of Chestertown, private foundations, community arts groups and the many friends of public art (like you!).

Alex has been an inspiration and has done so much for this community! Glad to see a kid-friendly work of ART getting showcased in Chestertown in his honor.
