The Vigil Project
Sculptor Bob McDermott, creator of Fairhaven’s “Dirty Dan Harris” is creating a master work to grace the Blaine Boardwalk on the H Street plaza which has recently been completed. A Nordic bronze trio-mother, wife and son of a fisherman at sea gaze out at Blaine Harbor, awaiting his return, reflecting Blaine’s Icelandic fishing heritage and the past, present and future of Blaine.
Partial funding for the Vigil comes from taxes on Blaine
tourism dollars and McDermott’s in-kind donation,
but the remaining dollars must be raised by private donations.
Take your place in Blaine’s history and preserve
your name, your business’ name or that of loved ones
in brick, bronze or stone engraving near the Vigil sculpture.
The Vigil sculpture is scheduled for completion and dedication on October 14, 2006 if needed donations are obtained.
Donation categories are as follows:
Sidewalk Brick $50
Sidewalk Double Brick $150
Platform Brick $250
Platform Double Brick $500
5”x12” Bronze $1,000
12”x16” Limestone $2,500
16”x20” Limestone $5,000
16”x20” Bronze $10,000
A wide variety of engraved symbols or your company’s logo can be added (except Single Brick size). Check out the engravings already installed on the H Street Plaza site.
