Join Turners Falls RiverCulture in celebrating the newest and most prominent public art in downtown Turners Falls, Saturday, June 17th.
Tim de Christopher is an internationally recognized artist and ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS is a much anticipated addition to downtown Turners Falls. The sculpture was selected last Spring from about 30 impressive proposals from throughout the country.
The sculpture is located at the seating area on the corners of Avenue A and Third Street. The afternoon’s activities will be set up on Third Street from the sculpture site to Canal Street. Throughout downtown shops and restaurants will be offering rock-paper-scissors specials!
Geology Walking Tour with Steve Winters. Meet at the corner of Avenue A/ Third Street.
Amble your way back 200 million years when Turners Falls was nothing more than a huge muddy lake sitting on a cooled bed of lava! And then, there’s the story of the famous Armored Mudballs – claimed to be found nowhere else in the world but Turners Falls. Steve’s geo-tour of the village should take about 90 minutes.
