On Thursday, January 26, the "High Spirits" sculpture (see photo) was installed at the lower North Green. Designed and fabricated by internationally known sculptor Chris Williams of Essex, and made possible by the generosity of resident Rick Silverman, the sculpture commemorates the artists of Ipswich, both living and dead.
In May of this year (exact date and time to be announced), a ceremony will be held to dedicate the sculpture installation. A plaque which notes the name of the sculpture and commerorates the Ipswich artistic community will be unveiled at the dedication ceremony. Other amenities planned for the site are a bench similar in style to those located elsewhere on the North Green, and subtle lighting of the sculpture for evening viewing.
