Tanglewood gets Copland sculpture
Today, 30 June, a sculpture of Aaron Copland will be unveiled in the formal gardens at Tanglewood. The sculpture, by New England artist Penelope Jencks, will stand near the place where Copland's ashes were scattered in 1990.
In the future sculptures of Leonard Bernstein and Serge Koussevitzky will also be displayed. The series of sculptures are funded through a gift by John Williams, who is Boston Pops Laureate Conductor and Tanglewood Artist in Residence.
