PUBLIC WORKS

In 1977, Ned Smyth was awarded his first public art installation, a fountain for the Governmental Services Administration (GSA) in the US Virgin Islands. This commission, and others that followed, marked a natural progression of Smyth's studio practice which was heavily informed by archeological sites, temples, cathedrals, and past structural periods and details. From 1985 through 2005, Smyth focused solely on public art. He has completed over thirty large-scale public projects including Upper Room (1986), the first art project commissioned for Battery Park City, New York. His public work can be found in locations such as Anchorage, Pittsburgh, Fort Lauderdale, Savannah, Wilmington, Brooklyn, Long Beach, and Dublin.
