In 2019, the Rochester Museum of Fine Arts enlisted the talents of sculptor and craftsman Adam Pearson to install three imposing metal sculptures along Columbus Ave./Rt. 125. These striking sculptures are now prominently displayed along a paved walking trail that leads to the Rochester Common, providing a delightful blend of art and nature for visitors to enjoy.
Adam Pearson is a distinguished sculptor hailing from Barrington, NH. A graduate of the University of New Hampshire’s esteemed Bachelor of Fine Arts program, Pearson is an accomplished artist whose work spans across multiple disciplines, including ceramics, welding, and casting.
In 2009, Pearson was elected president of Art Esprit, a non-profit arts organization. Under his guidance, the group successfully completed a series of public art projects, including If These Rocks Could Talk: Stories of the Granite State in 2010; Rochester Creates: Portraits in 2011; and The Mythology of Rochester in 2012.
Sponsored by the Department of Economic Development for the City of Rochester and Rochester Main Street, this project serves as a testament to the community’s ongoing commitment to the arts and its belief in the power of public art to enhance the beauty of public spaces.
