Olivia Kim, adjunct faculty in RIT’s College of Art and Design, speaks at a July 19 news conference announcing the start of the installation of 13 monuments of Frederick Douglass that she created. Kim designed the sculptures of Douglass for a Rochester, N.Y. community art venture that’s part of the Re-energizing the Legacy of Frederick Douglass project. The recognition and reflection marking the living legacy of the man and freedom-seeker marks two hundred years after the birth of arguably the most celebrated African American statesman, whose years in Rochester resulted in some of his most influential lifeâ€™s work. The sculptures, fiberglass monuments molded from an original Kim sculpture, will make up a self-guided tour to sites around Rochester that were significant to Douglass’ life and work. The first will be installed at Hochstein, the site of Douglass’ funeral.
