Roslindale Village Main Street will celebrate the installation of a new public art sculpture and say farewell to a longtime leader of the organization during its annual meeting this weekend.

The event is set to start at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 16 at the Saint Nectarios Greek Orthodox Church on Belgrade Avenue, according to an announcement from the nonprofit.

A dedication ceremony for the “Traffic” sculpture will highlight the meeting, organizers said. The public art piece was created by George Greenamyer, who will discuss his work at the event.

The ceremony will include a live performance from Andrew Ikenberry and Jason Lim, two students in the Interdisciplinary Arts Institute at the Berklee College of Music, organizers said. The students have composed music inspired by the sculpture using “found sound” from Greenamyer’s art studio, the traffic island and several shops in the business district.

The meeting will also honor Glenn Williams, who is resigning from the organizations board of directors. Williams, a former president of Roslindale Village Main Street, has been on the board for 18 years.

Members of the organization’s board will recap accomplishments from 2012 and discuss future plans, organizers said. Mayor Thomas M. Menino has been invited to speak.

The citywide Boston Main Streets program uses public funding and staff to support 20 independently-governed Main Streets organizations, including the one in Roslindale Village, that work with local business districts to improve storefronts and public spaces.
