Freeholder Bill Moen presented Stuart Harting of Haddonfield Outdoor Sculpture Trust (HOST) with the monthly Community Award. The Trust’s collaboration with the Borough of Haddonfield is transforming downtown Haddonfield into a significant center for juried sculpture. The initiative features contemporary outdoor sculptures from artists and is supplemented with exhibits from the Philadelphia Museum of Arts. The walkable showcase of art began with Haddonfield sculptor, John Giannotti’s dinosaur sculpture entitled “Haddy”, commissioned by the Borough in 2003. HOST’s display of original, three dimensional outdoor sculptures has added greatly to Haddonfield’s unique quality and overall appeal. It is anticipated that a dozen or more pieces of art will be added throughout Haddonfield. The displayed pieces are temporarily loaned and most are available for purchase by the artists.
