“Tapestry of New Rochelle” Reflects Diversity Of City

“Tapestry of New Rochelle,” an outstanding work of public art, conceived by Westchester sculptor Stomu Miyazaki, has been installed at the New Rochelle Transit Center. The installation features a series of brushed steel panels with silhouettes of faces alternating with horizontal ribbons of stone composite, which have been “woven” into the fabric of the Transit Center’s North Avenue façade. The sculpture will be illuminated in order to allow viewing during dusk and evening hours. In addition to the panels, the installation includes two signs reading “New Rochelle Transit Center.” An image of the new installation can be viewed HERE. As New Rochelle’s downtown continues to grow and change, the City will look for additional opportunities to introduction artistic elements into our streetscape. We are determined to create a vibrant downtown in which economic activity is matched by cultural vitality.
