Description: A pair of ceramic sculptures
Caption: "Sitting in a grove of trees and peering over a brick wall on Seldon Street, are the Elders ... ten foot tall clay creatures by Brockport artist Bill Stewart. These pieces were created as part of the 1989 series which resulted in the majestic five part cluster called The Council installed at the Monroe County International Airport. The pieces are both futuristic and ancient, primitive and sophisticated, a nd beg us to examine modern man's relationship to his world."
