GDC, ArtsWestchester Partnering to Bring Monumental Sculpture to 50 Main Street

http://thebcw.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/Sculpture-rendering-640×480-1.jpgOne of Westchester’s most prominent business addresses — 50 Main Street in downtown White Pains — will soon be home to a monumental sculpture to be installed under the arches of the 15-story office tower owned and managed by Ginsburg Development Companies (GDC).

Titled Fragments of Something Bigger, the sculpture will measure nearly 18 feet in height and be made of polished stainless steel which was selected for its ability to reflect light. The sculpture, which is currently being fabricated, will be set on a pedestal and surrounded by seating, all made from polished stainless steel. Installation is scheduled for this spring.

The sculpture is the work of Bulgarian sculptor Georgi Minchev, who was selected through a competitive, international, open call process managed by ArtsWestchester. Artists were invited to submit proposals for the site, and GDC and ArtsWestchester received submissions from 36 highly qualified sculptors.

“We are delighted to partner with ArtsWestchester in bringing exciting public artwork to our development in downtown White Plains. This remarkable sculpture is yet another example of our ongoing commitment to showcasing world-class artwork at our commercial and residential developments,” said GDC Principal Martin Ginsburg.

“ArtsWestchester applauds Martin Ginsburg for his appreciation of the important role that public art plays in creating vibrant environments that energize and inspire the places where we live and work,” said ArtsWestchester CEO Janet Langsam. “Our vision for White Plains is an exciting urban center where significant works of contemporary art punctuate the landscape and the built environment,” she added.

Last year, BCW Members GDC and ArtsWestchester unveiled the work of nine artists from the greater Westchester area as part of GDC’s investment in its art collection for 50 Main Street. The unveiling was part of a Grand Opening of the first phase of GDC’s reinvention of the 50 Main Street office building which includes a new mezzanine amenity level. A key feature of the new common space is a contemporary art collection curated by ArtsWestchester that features numerous Hudson Valley artists.
