Chesterwood Opens Its Annual Contemporary Scultpure Show
For the past 32 years, Chesterwood, the home and gardens of the American sculptor Daniel Chester French (1850 -1931) in Stockbridge has hosted a contemporary sculptures show on its lush grounds. A property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Chesterwood’s centerpiece is the intact studio of French who’s most famous for his sculpture at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. Undaunted by the rains last Friday, fans of Chesterwood came out to walk through the woods and see this year’s sculpture show (which includes Mary Ellen Scheri’s Commando, photo) and to meet many of the participating artists.
