When you’re down at the new Longshed at Canalside, be sure to stop and see the Bronze Sculpture of the Erie Canal Story. We’re grateful to artists Henry Schmidt, Bill Koch, and Zac Pritchard who worked in BMC’s Foundry to produce the sculpture. They sketched the concept, sculpted the clay, poured the bronze, and mounted the piece.
We’ll follow up with some additional photos of the entire process soon so be sure to check back!
The Bronze Sculpture of the Erie Canal Story was made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts under Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council Initiative.
