The six-foot- long solid bronze sculpture is of a cycling figure moving forward through space. “The Cyclist celebrates the freedom and joy of the rider. It exemplifies Greenfield’s goal to invite alternative transportation and healthy living,” says artist Ernesto Montenegro.
The sculpture sits atop a 3,600 pounds granite base donated by Nigus & Taylor Monuments and marks the path from Main Street to the Energy Park.
The Cyclist was commissioned by the Town of Greenfield in collaboration with Greenfield Public Art and the Greenfield Parks and Recreation Department. It was financed by the Massachusetts Cultural Council through the Adams Grant program, whose mission is to promote art, business and cultural development in communities throughout the Commonwealth.
“We are very excited about this new artistic addition to downtown Greenfield and invite everyone to join us for the public dedication,” says Mayor William Martin. The dedication is scheduled to coincide with the PRE-FEST FEST also on that date at the Energy Park with food and free live music.
