This portrait addresses the mystery of personality and public perception.
Arthur Fiedler, the longtime conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra, was a man whose media image and private persona were at odds.
The sculpture’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.
The Arthur Fiedler Memorial was fabricated by Lippincott, North Haven, CT.
