Local Sculptor Gets Citation from Senator Elizabeth Warren
Chesterfield sculptor James Kitchen received a special citation from Senator Elizabeth Warren today at 1550 Main for his large scale effort to provide public art in downtown Springfield. The promotion of recycling and local Western Massachusetts history has resulted in a positive economic impact for the city and a cultural wellspring of positive media for Springfield.
A walking tour map, created by the Springfield BID, encourages visitors to walk around downtown and discover the rich history, architecture, museums, and public art in and around Main Street. Numerous restaurant owners and local business owners have enthused about the subsequent positive media and positive comments from their customers, employees, and local residents.
Kitchen has installed 100 sculptures in downtown Springfield with the help of Evan Plotkin, the Springfield BID, and MassDevelopment. Western New England University recently purchased a large piece titled, Einstein’s Onion, that is on permanent display in the center of its campus. The sculpture reflects the University’s goal of connecting the various fields of study with students and the community.
Kitchen will have new large pieces at the Springfield Museum in March as part of an exciting Steampunk exhibit, and a large Buck Rogers style cannon made from recycled objects will be on display at the Armory next month.
I really love the people and energy I find in Springfield, enthused Kitchen. Springfield has a great Mayor and a lot of inspiring individuals in both business and the arts. The Springfield Central Cultural District designation that was just announced will help focus even more energy into the arts downtown and It should be exciting to watch as more projects develop.
