Pilot Bridge

About the Exhibition

Described in Artforum as “a monumental, futuristic steel crossbow mounted above a staircase that seems to have come from either a lighthouse or a ship,” Pilot Bridge’s form derives from the ethereal qualities of nature and the hard edge of technology. The sculpture has a granite bolder base and weighs a total of 45,000 pounds. Morrel (b.1950, Amityville, NY) said he envisioned a “sculpture as a vehicle as well as a journey. Pilot Bridge connects two regions; these regions are states of mind. I have envisioned sculpture as a private place which, through scale, context and compassion, can become collective and directed toward the oceanic.”
