G.L. Sussman - Site Specific Work

Rockefeller Center's Design Planning and Engineering Management Corporation remodeled the Concourse between 51st Street on the north and 47th Street on the south. This underground entry to the NYC transit subway system includes a design for a 13 foot cast bas relief sculpture entitled "Radio and Television Encompassing the Earth" as the dramatic centerpiece on the westside of Avenue of the Americas remodeled concourse renovated in 1988. This piece was based on the watercolor and design of Hildreth Meire. I was responsible for all aspects of the creation and the installation of the sculpture working along with Alan Hantman, Director of Design, Anthony Caserma, project manager, and the Construction Architecture team from Brennan Beer Gorman/ architects. All project expectations were met within the scheduled budget and on time.
