Otterness at MAG

Until 2011, MAG’s grounds were completely surrounded by an iron fence.  In conjunction with planning the City of Rochester’s award-winning Art Walk Extension project, a continuation of ARTWalk of Rochester in the Neighborhood of the Arts, the decision was made to take down sections of the fence and develop the Centennial Sculpture Park.  This action opened up the grounds to a wider community. The highly-visible placement of Otterness’s site-specific, appealing installation extends an invitation to explore MAG’s grounds and collection.
