The Arthur Fiedler Memorial

1984         92"h 82"w 81"d

material: sand-blasted aluminum plate on granite base
architect: Jim Falck, ASLA, Metropolitan District Commission, Boston, MA
site: the Charles River Esplanade, Boston, MA
commissioned by the Friends of Fiedler and the City of Boston
photographs by Will Howcroft

This portrait addresses the mystery of personality and public perception. Arthur Fiedler, the founder and conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra, was a man whose media image and private persona were at odds.

The sculptureā€™s esthetic approach engages distance and "knowing" in a dynamic way. A layered image, it reads most coherently from afar, becoming more abstracted as the viewer draws near, providing a visual parallel for the character of the man.
