New sculptures were installed recently on the Village Green in downtown Summit, all projects of the Summit Public Art committee. The newest installation, set up on August 30, is a figurative work by Boaz Vaadia entitled Ammi’el & Amaryahu.  

The bronze sculpture depicts two figures, one seated on a boulder and the other with a foot resting on the stone, and is representative of the sculptor’s oeuvre. “Through the exploration of the connection between man and nature, I create sculptures and environments that are contemplative and serene. The overall impact is of a warm and welcoming presence. The pieces look as though created by wind, water or other natural forces,” Vaadia explained. Some of the boulders in Vaadia’s sculptures come from construction sites in Brooklyn, where he lives. Every piece of an edition is custom fitted to the stone base by the artist who then signs and numbers each piece.

An Israeli native, Vaadia chooses the names of his figurative pieces from the Old Testament “as there is a strong Israeli tradition of using Biblical names, and these are a reflection of my cultural heritage.”

Debi Schwarzmann, a committee member, acted as the artist liaison for the Boaz Vaadia sculpture and is responsible for bringing the work to Summit.

The other sculptures on the Village Green are by Richard Pitts (Loose Change and Fiddlesticks) and Charlie Hewitt. All the works are part of the committee’s Temporary Art installations and will be in place for six months to a year.

The Summit Public Art committee is composed of volunteers and receives no funding from the city. To view other works that are installed in Summit, and for more information about Summit Public Art, visit the website www.summitarts@cityofsummit.org.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
