Caption: (Kettavong's) "ability to incorporate the site's architectural surroundings into the design of the finished work gives this sculptor's artwork more of an impact.
This detailed approach will be seen in Kettavong's larger than life size bronze sculpture of Nathaniel Rochester, to be unveiled in May 2008. The "Flour-City's" founder will sit atop a millstone in the Nathaniel Square Park located in Rochester's Southwedge neighborhood."
