Lincoln Financial Sculpture Walk at Riverfront
Take a walk along the river and experience award-winning sculpture reflecting the life and values of Abraham Lincoln.
A $500,000 award, established by Lincoln Financial in 2005, provided funds to the Greater Hartford Arts Council, in cooperation with Riverfront Recapture, to design a Sculpture Walk along the Connecticut River in both Hartford and East Hartford.
In a nationwide call for entries, a panel of local residents, representatives from Lincoln Financial and Riverfront Recapture reviewed submissions from accomplished artists around the country and selected fifteen works for this permanent public art exhibit.
Featured artists from Connecticut, New York, Illinois and Texas include Peter Busby, Peter Chini, Carole Eisner, Howard Fromson, Del Geist, Neil Goodman, Phillip Grausman, Don Gummer, Preston Jackson, Jonathan Kirk, Bruno Lucchesi, Darrell Petit, Virginia Seeley, Don Sottile, and Gar Waterman.
