Philipse Manor

Joseph Cavalieri

North, South and Home, 2009

Faceted glass in windows of the station overpass

Joseph Cavalieri's North, South and Home creates a colorful glow in the overpass of Metro-North Railroad's Philipse Manor Station on the Hudson Line.

The artwork, with a decorative border reminiscent of Dutch tile design (with an abstract train running over the symbolic hills of Westchester along the bottom) features tree branches and stylized geraniums reaching across six faceted-glass panels to represent travel and a connected community. At the base of the tree trunk is an outlined shape of nearby Philipsburg Manor, built in 1693 by Frederick Philipse.

Running through the branches is a haiku that reads: "A gentle Hudson - Whistle begins my journey - North and south and home."

Cavalieri creatively combined blue branches with a gradient orange-yellow background to create colorful contrasts that project a beautiful glow that will be visible from a distance and at night.
