The dedication of Mayer Ed Bohrer took place on May 23, 2016 in Gaithersburg, MD. Sculpted by Jay Hall Carpenter, a former Gaitherburg resident, the sculpture resides at Bohrer Park at Summit Hall Farm. The work depicts the mayor seated on a bench, gazing at the city where he served as mayor for twelve years. The dedication marks the 20th anniversary of Gaithersburg’s participation in CHARACTER COUNTS, a program Mayer Bohrer supported.
The Bohrer sculpture is part of Gaitherburg’s Art in Public Places program, which features more than 20 installations throughout the town; these include Heron and the Sun by Darrell Davis, Catch Me If You Can by Rosie Sandifer; The Box Turtle by David Turner and Journeys of Imagination by Gary Lee Price.
