Event Description

Based upon the 1907 Sanborn map of the neighborhood, Trace is a planting of 3,000 narcissus bulbs on the site of the vanished foundation walls of several demolished homes that once lined Whitesboro Street, Sculpture Space alumna Ann Reichlin of Ithaca, NY. Please join us to enjoy 3,000 flowers in bloom. The Colgate Inn will be sponsoring the reception.
Trace begins a new phase of Interventions at 914 Whitesboro Street, the ongoing series of site-works that I have been creating on Sculpture Space grounds since 1998. Each year the narcissus planted for Trace will emerge then disappear, momentarily revealing a vestige of the former density that once defined this West Utica neighborhood. By marking a moment in the neighborhood's past, Trace uses the universal quality of gardening to explore the idea of transformation and continuance.
