Sculpture In The Community

Artist: 
Paul Aschenbach

Battery Park Extension, Battery Street
1974, marble
 
Paul Aschenbach didn’t believe in gallery culture and focused his attention on making work solely for outdoor sites, and ultimately, collaborative pieces. This piece was created in collaboration with Bill Ford, Terry Dinnan, John Watenberg, Bob Vesely, and several of Aschenbach’s UVM students. The design consists of five groupings of marble intentionally placed as a way to view the sunset through the crevices carved in the stones.
