Sculpture Park & Museum Without Walls
Edward & Bette Brohel Museum Without Walls
As former director of the Plattsburgh State Art Museum, Edward Brohel served the State University of New York College at Plattsburgh with distinction for 30 years. During his tenure, he expanded the museum’s collection to more than 8,000 objects from antiquity to the contemporary period, curated over 150 special exhibits in the Joseph and Joan Burke Gallery, and established the Nina Winkel Collection and Courtyard; Regina Slatkin Collection and Study Room; Holocaust Memorial; Sculpture Park; and Museum Without Walls program, which places works of art in public spaces throughout campus. Brohel was assisted in these endeavors by Bette Brohel, who also served the college for 20 years as an academic advisor. SUNY Plattsburgh is grateful to Ed and Bette for integrating art into the fabric of campus life and forever changing the way students, faculty, staff, and the people of the North Country and the Champlain Valley are exposed to art. The Museum Without Walls was dedicated on September 17, 2013.
Plattsburgh State Art Museum’s Sculpture Park hosts a collection of monumental sculpture installations located throughout campus. It includes works by William King, Jon Isherwood, Don Osborn, David Stromeyer, Brower Hatcher, Daniel Kainz, Harry Gordon, and John Hock. The Sculpture Park creates an aesthetic dimension to our environment while symbolizing the college’s commitment to change, quality, creativity, and uniqueness. The Sculpture Park was officially dedicated on October 9, 1999.
