Monday’s sky was fiercely blue and gorgeous and perfect for an unveiling. The sculpted work, the Hatters’ Monument, by New Fairfield artist David Boyajian, undraped by Mayor Mark Boughton and a score of politicos and townspeople on the lawn of City Hall, is strong and vibrant.
It’s a marked statement about our city — its past, present and our future. At the ceremonies, Andrea Gartner, a longtime champion of downtown Danbury, warmly welcomed the work to our community, landscape and posterity. Her words say everything. I suggest you visit and look through the window, either way.
