Wild Geese Flock continues to grow

Chief Goose, which was sponsored by the Burnham OIP, is located at 105 S. Logan Blvd, Burnham and is homage to the Chief Logan High School. The five-foot-tall fiberglass goose was painted by Kay Kirkland and was dedicated to the late Dwight Kirkland, who was a celebrated muralist, responsible for producing many of the murals in the Borough of Lewistown. Community Partnerships’ Wild Geese: Flock Together public art project recognizes our region’s Goose Day Tradition.

LEWISTOWN – Throughout the course of the pandemic, Community Partnerships has continued to keep the Wild Geese Flock Together public art project moving forward.

There have been several new landings and we anticipate that 2021 will be a busy year, with several more geese currently at various stages of production. The goal of this project is to enhance tourism, strengthen community spirit, and build upon the public art of our region.

Some of the most recent landings include Chief Goose, sponsored by and located at the Burnham OIP, 105 S. Logan Blvd. This particular goose was painted to depict imagery associated with the former Chief Logan High School. Kay Kirkland was tasked with producing this piece.

If you find yourself in the area of Monument Square in Lewistown, you will notice Molly the Meadow Goose, strategically located at the bus shelter near the historic Embassy Theatre. The meticulously painted goose depicts a lively Pennsylvania meadow and was sponsored by Greg and Lois Grose, owners of Molly Maid.

Another recently landed goose is located at the Juniata Valley Bank, 100 West Water Street. JVB was the sponsor and wanted to build a nest for their goose, which celebrates the diversity of the Juniata River Valley, in a highly visible location.

To celebrate the diversity of the Juniata River Valley, artist Joanne Landis produced The Terra Grace (We the People) goose. This goose, sponsored by Juniata Valley Bank, is perched along a heavily traveled area in Lewistown and is located at 100 West Water Street, Lewistown. Community Partnerships’ Wild Geese: Flock Together public art project recognizes our region’s Goose Day Tradition.

This project, which recognizes our region’s Goose Day tradition, would not be possible without the generous support of the sponsors, talented local artists and many other individuals. For more information regarding the Wild Geese Flock Together public art project visit www.cpartnerships.com

Molly the Meadow Goose is located next to the bus shelter on Monument Square in Lewistown. This goose was sponsored by Greg and Lois Grose, owners of Molly Maid.
