The forty-two sculptures, some which have traveled more than 3000 miles East, are ready to be positioned in their new place of residence in Stamford Downtown for the summer of 2009. These sculptures are part of the DSSD’s outdoor summer sculpture exhibit, Roam Around. They are a collection of extraordinary sculptures of animals by eighteen artists on loan to the City of Stamford and the DSSD.

Installation will begin on Monday, June 1 through Wednesday, June 3 from 5 am to 11 am. It will take the city traffic division team, the DSSD’s operations Events Team, two fork-lifts and a loader truck to install them. Their installation is an event in itself and is more than likely to draw a crowd with very curious onlookers as each piece is hoisted from the holding area and transported via an open-air truck to its location amid ongoing activity.

Roam Around sculptures are certainly bound to make a grand appearance on the Streets and in the parks of Downtown and in Stamford Town Center! Roam Around runs June through August.

On June 10, the DSSD will host an opening reception for Roam Around, the official kickoff celebration and viewing for sponsors and the public at the Stamford Marriott. For tickets to the opening reception and a map of locations and more information about Roam Around, Art in Public Places 2009, call 203-348-5285 or visit
