Virginia Currents: John Newman

This video of commentary by sculptor John Newman on his work first appeared on public television's Virginia Currents in April of 2004, producer, Mason Mills.

The video features installation shots of Newman's large-scale public work, Skyrider, in the Shockoe Bottom area of Richmond, Virginia. The sculpture hangs beneath Interstate 95 in a tangle of road and rail overpasses known as "the spaghetti works."

For more information and still shots of Skyrider, visit "Disguise the Limits" below in our Gallery section. From there you will find an essay on Newman, an exhibition of his work, and coverage of Skyrider, including commentary and images, under "The Genie of the Station."
