Flotilla: A Floating Sculptural Installation in Oakdale Lake

Accompanied by online performance programming from Oakdale Lake
Oakdale Lake Beach
53-99 N 6th Street
Hudson, New York
12534
A constellation of Daniel Rothbart’s floating sculptures will be installed in Oakdale Lake, close to the Oakdale Beach. For these works, Rothbart welded aluminum arabesques around shapeshifting spheres of found glass to create serpentine chain forms that move freely move in the water. Glass chills from incandescence in the furnace to a solid likeness of water with its transparency and prismatic manipulation of light. Aluminum, by contrast, is a dull, industrial material, which remains foreign to the natural environment. Flotilla sculpture will be moored off the west bank of Oakdale Lake, directly facing the Oakdale Beach.

 

 

Poetry and Sound
Flotilla will be accompanied by performance works around the theme of water. Performances will be videotaped and streamed from Oakdale Beach.

Oakdale Park
Oakdale Park is a fourteen-acre public park in downtown Hudson, New York. It’s home to a five-acre spring-fed lake, a small sand beach, a half-mile of trails, and a small playground. Oakdale is on the site of the park proposed for public use and enjoyment in 1911. The park opened in 1915, and developed in subsequent years. Oakdale Park is walking distance from downtown Hudson and both free and open to the public.
