You may have driven on Sylvan Street over the past week and wondered: What’s with those sculptures on the Peabody Institute Library’s lawn?

The exhibit is sponsored by the library and The Barn Workshop Gallery and is called “Celebrating the Art of Sculpture.” It will be on display all summer-long – until Sept. 19.

The exhibit features 20 artists from across New England. The sculptures were created of many different materials, including stone and metal.

“We are bringing sculpture into the community in a way that it can be enjoyed by everyone,” said Library Director Alan Thibeault. “Last year’s exhibition created quite a stir. People came from all over to see the sculptures and we received a lot of positive feedback.”

“Even though the sculptures are very different, their size, structure, and placement complement each other and create a cohesive presentation,” said Michael Guadagno, exhibit curator and president of The Barn Workshop Gallery.
