PUTNAM – The Putnam Arts Council is pleased to announce the permanent display of a new community sculpture "Four People". "Four People" was created by artist Dale Rogers and was designed to depict family, community and togetherness. The sculpture is located along the west side of Kennedy Drive near the intersection with Route 44. Next time you are driving through town, or walking the River Trail, stop by and take a look! Dale Rogers is a full time metal sculptor from Massachusetts. He designs both large-scale sculptures for individual installation with private collectors and temporary public exhibits full of multiple pieces. Putnam recently hosted his Big Dogs exhibit and "American Dog" is on display at the future home of the Putnam Dog Park adjacent to the Putnam Farmer's Market pavilion. The process for creating his art takes at least six months from conception to completion - from idea to sketch to 3-D software design to laser cutting the steel pieces to welding them together. He is honored that his large sculptures enhance many public spaces across the nation for visitors to enjoy and he hopes to have a piece of public art in every state by 2015. When he is not designing, welding, or exhibiting, he likes to spend time with his 3 children traveling in his Vanagon, 4-wheeling, and flying kites.
