"Honoring the Onondaga Creek" Public Sculpture

Peter W. Michel, Sculptor as Artists

The story goes that the Onondaga people remember the time when the Salmon were so plentiful in the Onondaga Creek that one could simply walk across on the creek on the backs of the fish. The Valley neighborhood of Syracuse, NY partnered with The Syracuse Public Art Commission, the City of Syracuse Departments of Parks, Recreation and Youth Programs and Public Works and the Onondaga Indian Nation to create a public sculpture beside the Onondaga Creek to celebrate the abundance of it's past and their restoration intentions for its future. It honors the creek (water) as the source of life.

The sculpture is painted aluminum, 79" high x 144" long x 45" deep.
