Jordan hopes work to restore the wall will be completed this fall. Construction will be done with the gallery project in mind, including a black background to bring out the exhibited photos.
What the park now needs, Yvonne Dunetz reasoned, is a timeline showing Nashua's history and an outdoor gallery of framed photographs of city landmarks.
The center sits adjacent to the park, which fronts Main Street south of downtown across from the plaza that houses Shaw's supermarket. The deteriorating retaining wall separates the center's parking lot from the park.
The woman who spearheaded the drive to create the labyrinth hopes a refurbished retaining wall will be the next step in the park's transformation from an abandoned 19th century mill site to a present and future civic gem.
Dunetz may have had the original vision for the project, but now a number of people are on board, including business leaders, Mayor Donnalee Lozeau and Mary Jordan, executive director of the Adult Learning Center at 4 Lake St.
"Because Yvonne Dunetz never sleeps," joked Rotarian and downtown businessman Sy Mahfuz, who served on the committee to raise money for the labyrinth and now is assisting with the outdoor gallery project.

The wall is 180 feet long, tapers from east to west, and ranges in height from 7 feet to 5 1 2 feet. It must be repaired, whether the outdoor gallery project takes shape or not.
NASHUA With a walking labyrinth Nike Football Cleats Low in place, three sculptures installed and foundations for a Holocaust memorial laid, Rotary Common is shaping up nicely as one of the city's most artistic parks.
A donor wishing to remain anonymous has given $500 for the outdoor gallery project, and another donor is poised to also give $500, Dunetz said.
Repairing the wall will be done by city workers and paid for from a $75,000 federal grant administered through the city. The gallery and timeline will piggyback off that project.
Rotary Common opened in 2007, created by a mix of Rotary Club, federal and state funds on a 1.8 acre plot of state owned land where the original International Paper Box Machine Co. stood for 65 years.
The Adult Learning Center will serve as fiscal agent for the fundraising. Amherst artist Yusuf Abudi designed the timeline, and his photographs printed onto canvas and secured inside locked frames will be the first works displayed in what Dunetz imagines will evolve into a rotating, juried exhibition.
that raised $130,000 in private donations for the installation and maintenance of the labyrinth. Coming up with $15,000 for the outdoor gallery should be small potatoes.
The location has long been significant in the city's history. The site straddles Salmon Brook and had been home to textile mills dating to 1845 and the original Hunt family homestead.

The easternmost 70 feet of the wall would display the gallery, with the timeline built onto the narrower, western portion. The photographs, printed on canvas, will be 3 feet by 4 feet, 6 inches, Abudi said.
put it, "Imagine if there was an outdoor gallery that would celebrate the heart and soul of our city."
