A Bronze by Roy Shinin
(Cast 1976, Vila Foundry, Spain)
Young Icarus of Greek mythology acquired, used and abused knowledge and caused his own demise.
This bronze Icarus stands as both a warning and a hope. Today man can acquire and use education, knowledge and technology to make humanity soar or to destroy it.
The Borough of Manhattan Community College exists to help each student for his own good and the good of us all.
