“The New York State Bridge Authority has been a proud collaborator with Joseph Bertolozzi for a decade,” said Tara Sullivan, Acting Executive Director for NYSBA. “When the Mid-Hudson Bridge opened in 1930, it was noted for its artistic and graceful design. In 2000, NYSBA added the popular necklace lights along the main cables, adding to its beauty. Then in 2009, Joseph Bertolozzi expanded that artistic legacy further by turning this iconic structure into a world-renowned work of sound art. We’re thrilled to celebrate a decade of music on the Mid-Hudson Bridge.”
