Located next to the New Hampshire Holocaust Memorial on Main Street across from a strip mall and busy roadway, the Rotary Common Park is a most unlikely place to find an art display. But, the Rotary Common Park is just that; an outdoor art museum. And this isn’t just some tourist attraction. The art here is very thought-provoking and amazingly crafted.
The “Path Of Truth” is a memorial to the “layers of humanity”. Or, as Sarah Mae Wasserstrum said;
“From the Origin layers of Humanity, we are connected by a common denominator.”
She imagines humanity as like layers, some thicker and some modest, all plied from the past to the future. The stone signifies the immense power of people and our ability to grow and change.
A bench dedicated to Michael Kelley. Who was Michael? What was he like?
Since it is located directly across from the Holocaust Memorial, the Reflection Garden & Labyrinth is the most popular spots at the park. Benches, sculptures, tiles with words of inspiration and works of art dot the circular reflection area.
The “Encounter” sculpture by Luben Boykov,
Boykov described it as, “The present moment of meeting becoming a place in the future.”
Boykov explains the sculpture as a moment just before people meet that are so quick but also last forever. It represents an encounter that can begin a lasting relationship.
There was also a surprising amount of animal activity in the area like this bird and a thirsty cat.
The displays at the Rotary Park change on a regular basis so keep an eye out if you’re in the area!
