Town Considers Moving Sculpture to Sustainable Garden

The Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC) has given the Town preliminary approval to relocate the Girl with Hoop sculpture in Elm Street Park to the new sustainable garden in Zimmerman Park.  The Town Council believes that this artwork, sculpted by late Town resident Jenny Read, could make a nice addition to the garden and would serve as a fitting tribute to late Town resident Lee Dennison, whose bequest funded the garden.  However, before making a final decision, the Council would like to hear from the community about the proposed relocation.  If the relocation occurs, the sculpture would be on loan to the Town for automatically renewable one-year periods. 

If you would like to comment on the proposed relocation, please contact the Town of Chevy Chase at 301-654-7144 or townoffice@townofchevychase.org by April 15.  The Town Council will review all public comments and determine whether to proceed with the relocation. The Town also will provide all comments to both the AHCMC and the Montgomery County Parks Department for review.
