Medfield resident Jean Mineo is organizing a sculpture path from the Peak House to Vine Lake Cemetery that will likely appear in town by late spring.
Thanks to the efforts of Medfield resident Jean Mineo and a grant she received from the Medfield Cultural Council, a sculpture path will be returning to town this spring. “I think it will be really cool,” said Mineo. “We are hoping for installation [of the sculptures] in late spring and depending on materials, it could be up for the summer and maybe into September or it could be a shorter project. It’s not permanent but it would be an opportunity to get that conversation going [about] what the cultural opportunities are in Medfield.” Two years ago, Mineo organized a similar sculpture path at Vine Lake Cemetery. Five sculptors each produced a piece of contemporary sculpture related to the theme portals, which was displayed in the old …

Pope told the selectmen a "cultural district" designation would not "impose any restrictions or limitations on the places or businesses within the district, but it could position the town and cultural institutions within the district to receive funding from the state and other sources in the future," according to …
