Currently, four major artists have been commissioned to create work for Centennial Sculpture Park. Tom Otterness, known internationally for his engaging installations, is creating two heroic figures for the corners of Goodman and University Streets. He depicts a female sculptor who is carving a male figure from a block of stone – which then takes you on a path through the trees to a stone quarry where her previous attempts lie scattered. Jackie Ferrara, whose geometric pathways are showcased in sculpture parks and landscapes around the country, will be designing the path leading from the ‘quarry’ area to the front entrance of MAG. Two internationally known Rochester-based artists will provide the other anchor installations. Wendell Castle’s Unicorn Family will provide an outdoor grouping of chairs, a table, and a lamp for visitors who would like to spend some time enjoying the passing scene. And Albert Paley will contribute Soliloquy, a 25-foot stainless steel sculpture for the Goodman Street entrance.
