Griffiss International Sculpture Garden, a unique outdoor sculpture garden located in an industrial development park in Upstate New York, is located on the grounds of the Griffiss Business and Technology Park in Rome, N.Y. According to Sculpture Space Executive Director Sydney Waller, â€œThis kind of cultural project within a thriving business park - complete with an airfield and railroad - is thought to be the only one of its kind in the nation. Part of a Master Plan designed by Boston-based Sasaki Associates, the sculptures reflect an unusual collaboration between Sculpture Space, Griffiss Park Landowners Association and the Griffiss Local Development Corporation of Rome, New York and Griffiss Utilities Corporation. GPLA works with other entities to promote and expand business in Central New York State's Griffiss Business and Technology Park, a 3,500 acre former U.S. Air Force Base now home to 65 businesses with more than 5,800 employees.
