Design-Cast cement, 102"x18"x42", Crittenden Middle School, Armonk, NY   Commissioned by the Armonk Education Foundation in 1999, Aspire was designed and built with student assistance on a minimal budget. The completed nine-foot tower of acrobatic figures expresses middle-school-age energy, growth, and aspiration. After 17 years as a school favorite, the work was refurbished with an acrylic graphite finish in 2016.
