Library Kiosk Installation Unveiled In Stamford, CT

The city of Stamford recently unveiled a new artwork-installation-in-progress, a kiosk outside the library, designed by Charles and Heather Fazzino in conjunction with Stamford Downtown to beautify the city. The image is filled with “books and bugs,” as the artists like to say. The two artists actually installed the most exciting part of the sculpture, a series of butterflies embellished with Swarovski Crystals and resin, live on site in front of several media outlets and local dignitaries. As this beauty is a work in progress, make sure to keep a watchful eye on the progress if you’re in the neighborhood. It is scheduled to be completed in September of this year!

This is only one in a series of sculptures the Fazzino’s have created for Stamford. Last year, Charles and  Heather Fazzino  decorated a kiosk nearby called Downtown Dogs of Stamford.

A Quick Word from the Artist!
“One of my favorite parts of being an artist is doing projects like these art installations, regardless of whether or not it’s my own sculptural creation or if I’m decorating a piece of the landscape that already exists. It gives me great pleasure to give the surrounding area some of my Fazzino pizzazz! Having a series of permanent installations with my artwork has been a goal of mine for a long time and slowly but surely, they are getting out there. Literature is so important to the younger generations, no matter what they are reading. So when i created the concept for this specific design, I wanted to capture the beauty of literature and the addition of butterflies/bugs to give the nickname “Books Worms” a 3D meaning!”
