Dedication of Mechanic Street Sculpture Garden

The newly formed Haddonfield Outdoor Sculpture Trust (HOST) will unveil its first public placement on Saturday, June 8th at 11 AM at the intersection of Haddon Avenue, Mechanic Street, and Clement Street (one block from the center of Haddonfield).

The Trust, in cooperation with the Borough, is creating a public/private outdoor art initiative that will populate downtown locations in Haddonfield with rotational, contemporary outdoor sculpture.
The goal, according to local real estate developer and HOST chair, Stuart Harting, is to “transform this walkable, attractive and historically significant borough into a significant center for juried outdoor sculpture in the great tradition of public art.”
