Note from Wayne:

It took a lot of people to make this dinosaur project happen.  Thank you to Shaina Humphry for organizing this project.  She’s not just a supporter of the arts, she’s an advocate and promoter.

This statue was based off an earlier, smaller dinosaur.  (See More…)


If you are interested in seeing this one, it is located on Rt 202 (West State Street) at the Granby/South Hadley town line.  Other dinosaurs can be seen along route 202 in Granby, as well in front of The MacDuffie School on School Street in Granby.
