'Windy Walk' is the newest sculpture to be installed in downtown Pittsfield.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The first of four new public art exhibits was installed on North Street on Monday.

City workers and artist Gillian Christy placed the more than 300-pound sculpture "Windy Walk" on the teardrop planter outside of 99 North St. The sculpture is one of four new ones coming to the city this summer as part of the Artscape program.

"Each year we rotate pieces in and out. Several pieces have been here for a year or two," said Rebecca Tefft, the city's recreation activities coordinator.

More than 20 pieces of art will be displayed throughout the downtown. Walking maps and QR codes provide a self-guided tour of the exhibits.

"There will be between 20 and 25. They like to keep it downtown because that is the Artscape's mission," Tefft said.

The other three new pieces are expected to be installed in the coming week. One will be placed directly across the street from 99 North St in a teardrop planter, while another will be in front of City Hall and the last will be in front of the Berkshire Athenaeum.
