There is something about watching an artist get into their artistic groove as they create their next masterpiece.

According to the Lewiston Sun Journal, 6 local artists create 6 different granite sculptures during a live art show to celebrate Maine's Bicentennial. The art show will be held at Stevens Commons every day from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m., starting on Saturday, September 11th and ending on Sunday, Sept. 19.

Guests viewing the granite sculptures will vote for their favorite, and the sculpture with the most votes will be permanently placed in downtown Hallowell. The 5 remaining sculptures will be available for sale at the Harlow Gallery located on Water Street in Hallowell.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Maine's Bicentennial celebration was pushed off and then eventually canceled. This art show and these amazing sculptures will be a fun way for Mainers to celebrate Maine's 200th birthday finally.

This amazing event was organized by Hallowell Arts & Cultural Committee, the Maine Stone Workers Guild, the Historic Hallowell Committee, and Vision Hallowell.
