NYHS

Grate Works: Manhole & Sewer Main Covers
July 2 – Sept 4.

You’ll never look at manholes the same way after you see the prints and sculpture reliefs by artist Bobbi Mastrangelo.
This artist depicts grates, manholes and sewer main covers in simulated urban environments.
She challenges the viewer to see past the dirt and grime to appreciate the inherent artistry
of our public utilities and roads.
