Celebrated Buffalo artist Ellen Steinfeld was recently commissioned by Roswell Park Cancer Institute to create a sculpture as a tribute to Ride for Roswell founder Mitch Flynn. The sculpture – “Pathways To Hope” – was unveiled at Roswell earlier this week.
Steinfeld’s large scale public works can be found at numerous schools, hospitals, airports and stadiums, as well as museums and galleries throughout the US and Canada. Permanent collections that have acquired her works include the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Castellani Museum, the Burchfield-Penney Museum, the New York State Museum, Washington State Art in Public Places Collection and the State of Florida Art in Public Buildings Collection.
Seeing that the Ride for Roswell has become a signature Buffalo event, and one that raises millions of dollars each year for the institute, the recognition is deservedly so. The whimsical sculpture was commissioned to mark the 20 year anniversary of The Ride.
