Mayor Noam Bramson unveils the new NRNY sculptures.

Today, world-renowned 3D pop artist Charles Fazzino and his daughter Heather Fazzino unveiled two original sculptures on a plaza in downtown New Rochelle (at Huguenot and North.)   Combining creative vision with the City’s NRNY logo, the 100-lb, seven-foot-tall pop-art pieces are great examples of New Rochelle’s cultural vitality and a boost for our ambitious downtown redevelopment plans.

The new sculptures are part of a project entitled “Stacked!” spearheaded by New Rochelle’s Municipal Arts Commission and Department of Development. Through an open request to artists throughout the country, fifteen new NRNY sculptures will be erected throughout the downtown.

In addition, New Rochelle is launching a free “Otocast” audio narration app, which offers an interactive digital experience through self-guided audio tours. The audio guide will allow end users to hear directly from Charles and Heather Fazzino — and other artists — about their pieces.

The Fazzino family’s distinctive style is instantly recognizable and associated with some of the most famous sites and events in the world.  We are very fortunate that Charles and Heather Fazzino’s studios are located here in New Rochelle, and that they have been such generous believers in and contributors to our community.
