The split rhomboid dodecahedron monument at the Armenian Heritage Park on the Greenway, known as the Abstract Sculpture, was reconfigured on Sunday for the 2018 season. Made out of steel and aluminum, the Abstract Sculpture changes its shape each year. The debut of this year’s sculpture is one of the 24 possible configurations, featuring a tall wide center over a split base. The 2018 configuration is the seventh since the park was dedicated in May 2012. (See past configurations here.)
The annual configuration of the Abstract Sculpture is symbolic of all who were pulled away from their country of origin and came to these shores, establishing themselves in new and different ways. One of the interesting characteristics of the sculpture is how vastly different it looks from various sides.
A&A Industries oversees the annual reconfiguration, based on a Guide to the Annual Reconfiguration of the Abstract Sculpture with details, prepared by the Park’s architect/designer, Donald Tallalian. The Charles G. and Doreen Bilezikian Fund, an endowed fund of Armenian Heritage Park, supports related costs of the annual reconfiguration.
