Name That Sheep

There’s a visitor in town who wants to get a library card, but can’t without a name. Literary name suggestions for the visiting blue sheep will be accepted Aug. 24 through Sept.14 at the Newport Public Library.

The blue sheep sculpture is part of the Blue Flock Art Project created by two German artists, Bertamaria Reetz and Rainer Bonk.

Considered performance art (visual art presented in a dramatic way), a large flock of blue sheep sculptures are traveling around the world, symbols of peace and tolerance. The library will retain one blue sheep sculpture in anticipation of the flock’s installation next summer.

For more information about the project and its related activities, go to newportlibraryri.org/blue –sheep or call 401-847- 8720.
