Following a spirited design competition, the City has selected a finalist for a major public art installation at the New Rochelle Transit Center. Called “Tapestry of New Rochelle,” this installation, conceived by Westchester sculptor Stomu Miyazaki, will feature a series of large brushed steel panels with silhouettes of faces, reflective of our community’s diversity. The panels will be “woven” into the Transit Center’s North Avenue facade and illuminated at night. Reaction to the Miyazaki design has been very favorable, and I expect that the installation will be regarded eventually as one of New Rochelle’s signature features. “Tapestry” should be in place later this year.
