Georgia Sagri (b. 1979, Athens, Greece) lives and works in New York, New York, United States and Athens, Greece. Access Line is a pedestal for the many, a contemplative instrument, and a public organ. The 78-foot long ramp provides access to the top of the Plinth. Hundreds of hand-carved cymbals are strung on the railing of the sculpture. The artist will perform new compositions alongside local and international collaborators to engage the entire sculpture.

Tomilson Hill, The Holly Peterson Foundation, Annie Hubbard, Dorothy Lichtenstein, Donald R. Mullen, Jr., Miyoung Lee and Neil Simpkins, Doug Oliver, Mario J.
