The two-part celebration features the Park's Labyrinth and Abstract Sculpture.
The Labyrinth represents life's journey - one path leading towards the center and the same path leading out. A single jet of water at its center is symbolic of hope and rebirth.
The Abstract Sculpture, commemorates the immigrant experience. Annually at the beginning of April, the Abstract Sculpture, a split rhomboid dodecahedron, is reconfigured, symbolic of all who pulled away from their country of origin and came to these Massachusetts shores, establishing themselves in new and different ways. A crane lifts and pulls apart the two halves of the split rhomboid dodecahedron, made of steel and aluminum, to create a new sculptural shape.
