Public Art Up on the Roof
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.
