STUDIES for a PUBLIC SCULPTURE for
Alvord Park of the Northside Neighborhood of Syracuse, NY
.
Design Study for Alvord Park
Design Study for a sculpture for Alvord Park
   .
Design Study - view 2  .    

There are two primary determinants for the proposed design. 

1.  The desire to have a strong visual impact from a distant view and

2.  To express the idea of folks from around the world coming to the Northside of Syracuse, forming a diverse community and joining together to fulfill a common dream of a thriving, vibrant place to live and raise a family. 

The eight foot tall outer circle represents the world beyond Syracuse and is directly on axis as one comes down Court Street toward Alvord Park.  The cut outs represent the space left behind when people relocated for new opportunities.  The inner circle represents the new neighborhood where people working together have power beyond the individuals to create a place they can be proud of.
