If You Build It

A grand and colorful series of sculptures, the The Bridges of Sugar Hill is composed of four structural models of bridges. Swirling with infectious colors offset by a sleek and simple unifying design, these models symbolize both the concrete and conceptual linkages that Sugar Hill extends to the rest of New York City. Celebrating the vibrant cultural and artistic heritage that reverberates throughout the neighborhood, this piece recognizes the temporal ties of the past binds them to the present by creating a space for exhibition attendees and neighborhood residents to connect and socialize. Operating not only as a symbolic structure, but also as a site for community building, The Bridges of Sugar Hill therefore spans both physical and sociological gaps to construct a passage for individuals to come together, and create fruitful relationships.
