The Broome County Arts Council is hosting an outdoor walking sculpture tour in downtown Binghamton on Saturday, highlighting significant art pieces that often go unnoticed.
The tour will begin at Ed Wilson’s memorial to JFK titled “The Seven Seals of Silence” located across Chenango Street from the Maurice Hinchey bus station and finish at Confluence Park.
Along the way, walkers will see 8 sculptures and a couple of buildings including the statue of Daniel Dickinson in front of the Broome County Courthouse and the Perry Building across the street.
Tour Guide Connie Barnes says this is an opportunity to learn more about outdoor artwork and our area’s heritage.
“The history of Binghamton is very important, the knowledge of what our forefathers saw when they were building our community is really important. It will help us to continue to build our community in the proper way.”
The tours are part of the Path Through History initiative.
They begin at 11, 1 and 3 o’clock and last roughly 45 minutes.
There is no charge and the Arts Council says you can reserve a spot via email at Information at BroomeArts.org or call 723-4620.
