The "Games People Play: Sculpture in the Park", is the title of this year's Arts on the Edge exhibition in Town Park, Wolfeboro. Twelve students who created the works were non-art majors enrolled in a General Education course at Plymouth State University. The course, "Public Art: The Politics of Visual Meaning", was designed and taught by Professor Phil Lonergan, the head of the Sculpture program at PSU. The works that students made for the Wolfeboro show were constructed using a wire armature covered in burlap and plaster and then painted. Students worked together to develop an appropriate theme for the town park , they thought about scale and visual impact, and they designed the pieces specifically for the site. The sculpture display is one facet of a summer program, which will also feature a day of poetry with published and award winning Mine poets, Gibson Fay-LeBlanc and Arielle Greenberg, August 19 at the Pinckney Boathouse on the Brewster Academy campus.
