This summer whtn the weather turns warm, Franklin residents will be able to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine, thanks to 5 new benches courtesy of Choose Franklin, an inclusive citizen's group focusing on promoting Franklin, and a generous private donor. Philip Morse, an internationally known New Hampshire designer, has been commissioned to produce 5 stripped-down park benches to be placed in various locations in downtown Franklin. The simple, clean lines of the benches will provide a "canvas" for local designers to showcase their ideas and art, with artists being selected through a competition that will choose which designs will be produced.
