WESTFIELD – The Harold Grinspoon sculpture “Epiphany” was installed in the Kane/Wojtkiewicz park on North Elm Street behind the clock tower on Jan. 15.
Grinspoon, a 92-year old Agawam sculptor and philanthropist, has been taking dying trees and giving them new life in sculpture for the past 20 years. “Epiphany” was created from a single live oak log. The Planning Board sought the sculpture for Westfield, which was approved by the Parks & Recreation Committee and the City Council.
The installation is on loan to the city at no cost for 24 months, with annual renewals up to five years. Installation fees and cost were also paid by Harold Grinspoon Artworks.
Grinspoon has said he likes people to have beauty in their town and it gets his name out. He oversaw the installation of the sculpture Friday, which was done by Harold Grinspoon Artworks staff.
