Recent Art Combines with Earlier Creative Features on the Bikeway in Somerville

On an April walk along Somerville Community Path (or Bikeway), I stopped to enjoy some new discoveries and familiar favorites. In this post I begin with photos of the recent additions and then share older photos, plus links to supporting information in earlier posts or new resources. As always, I appreciate the reliable richness and intriguing changes on this path.

Sunny, the Spirit of Hope, in Free Range Sculpture Garden

Earlier Photos from Free Range Sculpture Garden near sign that reads “NOT deCordova Sculpture Park ANNEX:”

Photos from past seasons of two giraffes (George the Giraffe and Big Poppy), with note that all four ears can still be wiggled:

Recent photo of “Annex” by Christopher Frost, with high hopes of nest builders again this spring:

Reference this map of the Somerville Community Path.  Walk from Cedar Street with giraffes, then Lexington Avenue Mural on the left, cross Willow Ave with Christopher Frost’s “Annex” above, then to “Free Range Sculpture Garden” on the right.

comment from Bob Smith on March 2020 Art Outdoors post (ANIMAL SCULPTURES GREET US ALONG THE SOMERVILLE COMMUNITY PATH):

“Strange beings from another dimension of time and space have been appearing in the area next to the Somerville Community Garden for over 10 years. I think they are super heroes fighting boredom and apathy in all dimensions of time and space and are visiting this spot because they felt they were needed there.
I believe it is a (non-jury, self-curated) Free Range Sculpture Garden that is open to all ages to add to.”
