Art on Main
Great public art really adds to a destination downtown.
The Chamber of Commerce is so pleased to have played a role, in partnership with the City of Concord, in this public/private partnership through Creative Concord.
A Self-Guided Tour
Concord, NH, is a place of art and artisans: From local jewelry and craft shops, to galleries and the League of NH Craftsmen. Art is part of the city’s heritage. Historic statues surround the New Hampshire State House and dozens of paintings adorn its halls. Public art lines Main Street. Murals and community art projects are springing up around the city. And now the City of Concord and the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce have created Concord's Art on Main program, an annual, year-round outdoor sculpture exposition that enlivens and enhances Main Street. Mixed with Concord’s classical art, it creates an open-air gallery that is free to enjoy, and on view every day. Installations may last from one to two years, typically remaining on view from 12 to 18 months. The artworks are leased from their owners. And, all of the art is for sale - so contact the Chamber if you are interested in purchasing one. Public art allows a variety of artists to engage the public and brings a rotating collection to enrich life in our city.
New this year are: Judith Peck's "Tennis Player," Blaze Konefal's "Windwave V8" and David Skora’s “Harlequin.”
They join work by Rob Lorenson, “Taper Deco;” David Boyagian, “Unfurling With Seeds;” Jon BonSignore , “Toe Dancers;” Dale Rogers, “American Dog;” Joe Gray "Bench;" and Beverly Benson Seamans "A Moment in Time."
Now in its third year, Concord’s rotating outdoor art exhibit features the work of artist both local and national. Art on Main is a year-round, outdoor, open-air exhibit and is a partnership between the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce’s Creative Concord Committee, and the City of Concord.
