Public Art Up on the Roof

Aug 24, 2012

Most public art is at street level, where people can see it.   But a new sculpture in Lexington is up on the roof.  The piece, which resembles a multi-story, black metal wine rack, sits atop the Downtown Arts Center.  The 70-thousand dollar structure was unveiled over the summer.  Called “Concordia,” it was created by Dewitt Godfrey, who’s an arts professor at Colgate University.  In a conversation with reporter Charles Compton, Godfrey explained “Concordia” is not just an expression of his imagination. It’s also some heavy-metal engineering.
