17-foot-tall rings are installed as part of riverfront art project

  • 0

Colorado-based sculptor Joshua Wiener watched Wednesday as metal rings that make up his sculpture were installed on either side of a new pedestrian bridge in Manchester.

The city of Richmond hired Wiener for a riverfront art installation of a series of 17-foot-tall rings he’s titled “The Path Untraveled.”

Wiener, to whom the city has awarded a $200,000 commission for the project, designed the work to cut through the southern terminus of the T. Tyler Potterfield Memorial Bridge, which is under construction and will offer a pedestrian pathway from Brown’s Island to Manchester.

In his proposal, Wiener said he hopes the work will suggest “new perspectives through the landscape,” inspired in part by the bridge it will adorn, which he called a significant accomplishment for access to nature.
