Ann Pasko, Garden Tour president, unveiled the sculpture at a ceremony on Saturday.
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — City officials and the Pittsfield Garden Tour welcomed a new permanent resident to the First Street Common on Saturday.
The 14-foot sculpture "Infinite Dance" was given to the city during an afternoon ceremony.
The sculpture features a dancing woman on top of a large stainless steel ring and was designed and created by Carol Gold.
"This is the most special project I've ever done," Gold said at the ceremony. "Doing this was like giving a gift to the Berkshires."
Gold was selected from 77 submissions and the funding was provided through fundraisers by the Garden Tour and the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.
"This sculpture, which will grace this park for decades, embodies what the Common should be — a place of joy and happiness," Mayor Daniel Bianchi said.
"The Garden Tour committee is delighted, happy and proud to gift this sculpture to the city," Langman said, later adding that the city is "vibrant and alive."
Also attending the unveiling was state Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier, City Councilors Melissa Mazzeo, Christine Yon and Kevin Morandi, City Clerk Linda Tyer and staff of Community Development Department.
