from Jean McAvoy:
The transformation of the Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge into Walkway Over
the Hudson has captivated people’s imaginations, if foot traffic numbers
are any indication. Come hear the fascinating story of yet another
transformation of the old bridge. Michael Ciccone, who lives and works
in Saugerties, Ulster County, New York, derives inspiration from found
metal objects and the landscape, culture and history of the Hudson River
Valley. All of these influences come together in the Bridge Project. As
he helped transform the Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge into Walkway Over
the Hudson State Park, Michael has been inspired to transform some of
the 19th century steel into sculpture.
