Saratoga Springs, New York Train Station Commission

In the Spring of 2003 Alice Manzi was part of a team of artists who won the commission to provide artwork for the Saratoga Springs Train Station in Upstate New York. The work, ultimately named "Rhythms of Saratoga", consisted of design and fabrication of a 54 foot architectural frieze for the front of the new building as well as a design, to be fabricated in linoleum, for the floor of the station. The new station was opened on April 1, 2004, and the work has received much acclaim.

The frieze depicts imagery of the train ride from New York City to the Adirondack Mountains, with images of the city of Saratoga in the center.

Shown above is the floor image in linoleum, 10 feet by 20 feet. It represents the figures of the Triton Fountains in Saratoga's park merging with horses, suggesting the city's long history of thoroughbred racing.
