This is a color image but the gloomy cloud cover has drained all the color out of it. This sculpture is actually quite vivid. And November is supposed to be like this. . . it’s wintery. . . I like it. Asher Schofield, owner of the entertaining gift shop Frog and Toad, seems to be one of the guiding forces behind the project. Head over to Hope Street near Rochambeau to view four sculptures newly installed by artist Donald Gerola. According to the Providence Journal Gerola packed up six years ago,
. . . sold his historic property in Pennsylvania to follow his “insane obsession” with sculpturing in Providence, a city he adores.
We hear so often about the brain-drain and all the young adults leaving for opportunities elsewhere, it’s nice to be reminded that occasionally people actually move here.
