NEW CITY, NY.- The Rockland County Art in Public Places Committee announced the formal dedication of Waves of Change, a 12-foot high glass and Cor-ten steel sculpture by Gordon Huether, situated in front of the Allison-Parris County Office Building on New Hempstead Road in New City.

A dedication ceremony, with County Executive Ed Day presiding, took place on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at the County Office Building.

With its vertical forms and curved contours, Waves of Change reflects the winding rivers of the Hudson Valley, the majestic cliffs of the Palisades, and the growing and diverse population of Rockland County.

Gordon Huether attended the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington and has created site-specific installations for the Jacksonville International Airport, the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Austin, Texas, and the Hiroshige Museum in Tendo, Japan, among many others. Mr. Huether was recently selected to work with the Redevelopment Program at Salt Lake City International Airport, where one of his large-scale sculptures will be installed in a new terminal, scheduled to open in 2020.

In the coming months, additional AIPP projects will be unveiled at the Fire Training Center in Pomona, at the Sparkill Creek Drawbridge in Piermont and on the campus of the Robert L. Yeager Health Center where artist and long-time Pomona resident Bill Hochhausen is in the process of restoring his art deco bus shelter, first designed in 1990.

The Rockland County Art in Public Places Committee – a group of 11 local volunteers including artists, art historians, architects, conservators and arts administrators – commissions, selects, places and preserves site-specific works of art in a variety of media. For over 30 years, AIPP has integrated art with architecture and the environment to enhance the enjoyment of public spaces. The committee is supported by the Percent for Art Law which provides that funds from some county construction projects be allocated for the acquisition of unique works of art to be placed in public sites throughout Rockland County. Introduced in 1986 by legislators Harriet Cornell and Bruce Levine, the law (the first and only program of its kind in New York State other than one in New York City) seeks to make art accessible to all Rockland County residents and visitors and to foster a sense of community connection and pride.
