Last Saturday, ArtsWestchester‘s gala 2017 fundraiser celebrated the new bridge as a work of art, honoring project director Jamey Barbas, P.E., and Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC (TZC).

Appreciation awards were given to Business Council of Westchester president and CEO Dr. Marsha Gordon and public outreach coordinator Andrew P. O’Rourke, Jr.

Arts in the region “brings us closer to our neighbors on the other side of the bridge,” ArtsWestchester CEO Janet Langsam said three summers earlier.

The nonprofit was one of four groups collaborating on the 2014 Bridge Art Show that linked the project to creative populations in Nyack and Tarrytown. “It’s symbolic of connections and metaphorically working together.”

Congratulations to those who were recognized as we follow this exciting project.

I’d like to know what you think.
