The first piece to be installed was “Uno” by Miguel Antonio Horn of Bala Cynwyd, PA. This sculpture was last exhibited at the Brownsville (TX) Museum of Fine Art.
Horn’s work chosen by HOST ‘s Selection Advisory Committee, which includes Robert Roesch, chair of the Department of Sculpture at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts; artist and sculptor Beth Wagner; Allie Westerside, a member of the arts faculty at Haddonfield Memorial High School, and Harting, who also serves as a member of the Borough’s Planning Board.
The tiles were created by 16 of Westerside’s HMHS students—Christina Koontz, Emily Britton, Meaghan McLaughlin, Elissa Rosen, Elizabeth Rexon, Tyler Tantillo, William Kirk, Maria Ablonczy, Kathleen Thorn, Emma Fowler, Gabrielle Welsh, Alexa Acampora, Meredith Hoobler, Gabrielle Melzi, Stephanie Harski, and Sabrina McPherson.
“Haddonfield has many sites that would seem appropriate for evaluation as locations for either permanent or rotating placements,” HOST chair Stuart Harting believes.
The Trust’s third installation is “Muse,” which was created by Joe Mooney, and sits at the entrance of the Republic Bank branch at the corner of Kings Highway and Chestnut Street.
Other significant outdoor art in Haddonfield includes “Haddy,” by John Giannotti at the corner of Kings Highway and Lantern Lane (across the street from “Muse”) and a section of structural steel recovered at Ground Zero from the site of the World Trade Center’s twin towers in NYC, which is on permanent display at the home of the Haddonfield Volunteer Fire Company on North Haddon Avenue.
The Trust’s next installation is scheduled for November 18th on the plaza at the front of Haddonfield’s Masonic Lodge on Kings Highway just east of the “Muse” placement. This work, titled “Monk” has been created by Harry Gordon.
Also planned for future installation is a piece by Terry Jones, honoring Joseph Cattell, “the Paul Revere of South Jersey.” This piece, which is being created with financial support from the Cattall family, will reside on Kings Highway adjacent to Kings Court, one block from the “Uno” installation.
