Cultural Views: Windows on Rochester
Presents the Sibley Marsh
February 10, 2003 Rochester, NY - The Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester’s display window in the Sibley Centre will feature artist Eric Taylor’s “The Sibley Marsh” during the month of February 2003. This window is one of eleven window displays created by Rochester’s arts and cultural organizations. “Cultural View: Windows on Rochester,” a project of Willmorite, features window displays created by Rochester’s arts and cultural organizations.
Eric Taylor has built an installation, “The Sibley Marsh” to attract attention to the coming art work that will be unveiled in spring 2003 as part of the Charlotte Art Gardens. The City of Rochester Dewey Net Office invited Taylor and several other artists to display their sculptures and installations in the Charlotte Art Gardens, a neighborhood Enhancement program. The works will be featured in the business district on Lake Avenue and near the waterfront. The Charlotte Art Gardens is an effort to build a tourist destination for visitors.
Taylor’s installation at the Sibley Building is a smaller version of the one he plans for the Charlotte Art Gardens which is funded by a Culture Builds Communities grant from the Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester with funding from Citibank and the City of Rochester. The installation brings attention to the history of Charlotte, which was a swamp on the river inlet all the way from Lake Ontario to Turning Point Park. The installation includes swamp reeds of PVC pipe using detergent jugs as planters and other found objects.
