ROME, NY - New sculptures now sit in the roundabouts in the Griffiss Business and Technology Park.
Thursday morning "The Wings of Change" was installed in the roundabout near Ellsworth Road. It was created by sculptor James Seaman, the creator of "Nature's Wrath", the eagle sculpture which was previously installed in a middle roundabout.
The Griffiss Park Landowners Association and Griffiss Local Development Corporation also recently installed "Cyber", inside the Route 825 and Hangar Road roundabout.
These are three of 26 sculptures in the park.
“The theme of this piece is to be about the change that the airport has gone through to turn into the tech park. And so “Pegasus” represents change, so I incorporated the jetstream with the jet to get it to represent what is happening around here, all the good stuff and the energy,” said Seaman.
Seaman says he's been working on sculptures for most of his life, and works mostly with stainless steel.
