GMP has commissioned from sculptor, Valery Mahuchy, a life-sized bronze “Archie” statue. The statue will honor Meredith resident and artist, the late Bob Montana, as part of Meredith's 250th anniversary celebration in 2018. Not only will the comic strip character find a permanent place in town; but also, it will serve as a tribute to Bob Montana's many contributions to Meredith. Among those contributions were protecting the waterfront from commercial development (Save the Bay), promoting Meredith as supportive of the arts, and preserving the village character of Main Street. In addition, Montana played an instrumental role in making Meredith's 200th anniversary celebration in 1968 a smashing success prior to his sudden and premature passing at 54. GMP welcomes the public to gather with the Montana family August 9th, 2018 at noon in Community Park on Main Street. The statue will be commemorated there, across the street from Montana’s former gallery and frame shop. (Image credit: Morgan Karanasios)
