The Painted Rocks of Amsterdam
In 2011 Alice was hands on with the fabrication of The Painted Rocks of Amsterdam, her re-creation of a famous Mohawk Indian rock painting in the city of Amsterdam, NY.
The piece was commissioned by the City in 1996, but the discovery of toxic waste on the site delayed the project for fifteen years. The 36 foot manufactured rock piece was formed using molds taken from the original rock, just 100 feet from Riverlink Park
See PaintedRocksofAmsterdam@blogspot.com for photos and information about this historic project. The Painted Rocks have become NEW YORK STATE's NEWEST TOURIST ATTRACTION.
