Director of the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery Catherine Tedford has been
invited to serve on a federal arts panel for the Art in Architecture Program
of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). The project is a new
$2.6 million federal border station in Massena, NY, designed by Smith-Miller
and Hawkinson Architects in Manhattan.
According to the GSA, the Art in Architecture Program "commissions publicly
scaled artworks that are integral parts of the architectural fabric or
surrounding landscapes of new federal buildings. This program enables GSA
to provide the American public with government office buildings and courthouses
that are not only pleasing and functional, but that also enrich the cultural,
social, and commercial resources of the communities where they are located."
Smith-Miller and Hawkinson Architects is a New York City-based architecture
and urban planning firm founded in 1983. The firm has conceived public and
private projects across the United States, ranging from residential commissions
and parks to corporate buildings, public transportation terminals, theatres
and museums. Major projects include a $62 million expansion of the Corning
Glass Center, which opened in 1999, and the US Land Ports of Entry at
Champlain and Massena for the General Services Administration.
