The Wit Gallery Presents “Sculpture and Shakespeare” July 4th in Lenox

(PRESS RELEASE) Join the Wit Gallery at Shakespeare & Company for a special afternoon of sculpture demonstrations by sculptor Michael Alfano. Mr. Alfano will be providing these demonstrations during Shakespeare & Company’s July 4th Celebration, before and after the reading of the Declaration of Independence at 3 p.m.

Mr. Alfano is a prolific sculptor from Hopkinton, Mass., whose work addresses the more metaphysical questions of life. One of his most notable public monuments "One World United For Peace" is on display permanently in Liberty Tree Memorial Park in Lenox, Mass., at the corner of Walker and Church Streets. The design features thirteen figures atop a tower supporting a globe, implying the need for worldwide unity after the tragedy of September 11th. "I reflected the myriad of emotions people felt, to help with their healing process," explains Alfano. "The sculpture also does more than immortalize the tragedy by speaking to 'what now?'"

While on the Shakespeare & Company grounds, be sure to look for "Cubed," Michael Alfano's newest interactive lawn sculpture. "Cubed" is a theatrical nine-piece puzzle of a man and woman's face which can be moved into different configurations. The sculpture was placed on the Shakespeare & Company campus as part of The Lenox Village Sculpture Walk which runs through Columbus Day. This is the 2nd annual Sculpture Walk sponsored by The Lenox Alliance for the Arts & Humanities, in collaboration with The Wit Gallery. The Sculpture Walk also includes works by Obadiah Buell, Leslie Harlow, Jeff Kaiserman, Stanley Marcus, David Millen and Karen Rossi, whose pieces can be found along Church Street in Lenox.

Shakespeare & Company is at 70 Kemble Street in Lenox. For more information about Michael Alfano and to see more of his work visit The Wit Gallery ( at 27 Church Street, Lenox.
