Alan the Robot

Outside the Belmar Arts Council stands Alan the Robot, welcoming all. He stands about 6-7 feet tall and has a smile for everyone who visits.

[Steve Herold, 09/03/2019]

Alan was built by Belmar Arts Council member John Hutchinson in 2014. He's brought inside during the cold weather months, and returns every Spring with a slightly different look (he knows something about cybernetic evolution that we don't).
