Dancing Girl at Old Town Hall on Tues, Aug 10 at 1pm

Dancing Girl returns to Atlantic Street
Mayor Michael Pavia and his wife Maureen will preside over a ceremony to welcome the Dancing Girl back to Stamford Downtown following nearly a decade of absence.

Dedication of the Dancing Girl. In 1987, local businessman Matthew Stacom and his wife Lesta, loaned to the City of Stamford the sculpture Dancing Girl, created by noted Stamford sculptor James Knowles. The sculpture was placed as the focal point in a fountain at the newly renovated Kiwanis Park, and for the next 14 years Dancing Girl graced Atlantic Street with its fluid lines and movement. But in 2001, the sculpture was removed for the remodel of the Palace Theatre and adjacent Kiwanis Park. For the next 9 years it languished in storage. Now, thanks to the generosity of Mr. & Mrs. Stacom who have donated Dancing Girl to the city, Eastern Land Management that has created a beautiful garden surrounding the sculpture as a gift to the city and the Paramount Stone Company that has donated a granite block to hold the commemorative plaque, Dancing Girl has returned to the light of day. All of this was made possible through the leadership of Mayor Michael A. Pavia and the perseverance of the Old Town Hall Redevelopment Authority and the Stamford Downtown Special Services District.

Please join us for the dedication.
WHERE: Old Town Hall at the corner of Atlantic and Bank Streets
WHEN: Tuesday, August 10th at 1:00 PM
