Enfield Public Sculpture


The Community Arts Partnership is working with the Enfield community to design and commission a sculpture that will live in front of the highway barns on Enfield Main Road.  The sculpture will be centered around the community's culture and values related to food, and in particular will celebrate Gayogo̱hó:nǫˀ (Cayuga) food culture.  The Enfield sculpture is the first of a countywide sculpture trail centered around the same theme, funded by the Tompkins County Tourism Department.
