ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Two new sculptures are on display at the Onondaga Community College Campus. They were dedicated as part of OCC's Arts Across Campus Series.
The first sculpture was created by Jason Roth, a 2003 graduate of Cicero-North Syracuse and 2007 graduate of OCC. Entitled "Reticulum," it was made from corten steel and weighs about one ton.
Roth says he wants to show art students they can be successful with their careers as well.
"I named it Reticulum and ideally, in my head, it was about the exchange, the rapid exchange of fluids, like the end of plasmic reticulum inside of the cell. And I thought it was a good metaphor for a good start point to the evolution of my career and a good symbol for people who walk around campus," Roth said.
This other sculpture is called “Signature” and was created by Rainer Maria Wehner from Germany. He is a professional artist who has taught at Hobart and William Smith Colleges and has lectured at Syracuse University.
