Sculpture Outdoors

Welcome to Broome County Arts Council’s on-line exhibition of public sculpture! This collection of historically and artistically significant works in Greater Binghamton and Broome County is a collaboration with Binghamton University Art History Department and Professor Kevin Hatch. The project editor is Jillian Proscia. This ongoing collaboration started in 2013. The goal is to identify, catalogue, and raise awareness of public sculpture as valuable cultural assets, landmarks, resources and attractions that are worthy of investment and care. This catalogue offers stories about how these works came to “live” among us and the artists who designed them. Many of these public sculptures bear the scars of change caused by nature’s sun and storms or by human neglect and, sometimes, violence. But still they stand, meaningful public sculptures that serve as community touchstones of past glories, current realities, and future promise.

Each sculpture listed below possesses its own unique story. As you click through the exhibition, you can read its history as well as locate the sculpture within Broome County. We encourage you to leave your comments on each page, whether you mention personal knowledge of the sculpture or simply offer your opinion. We welcome your interaction within our virtual exhibit. Enjoy!
