So. The Tioronda Bridge truss sections are stacked against the fence of the Beacon Recycling Center and elicits, I'll assume, genuine concern.. "what a shame",.. A "pity." The iron sections, have been rusting away for years, even prior to the bridge being dismantled a few years ago. Could it have been saved?
Yes. But that's water over the dam, so to speak. What to do.
Here is where the Beacon artist community comes in to play. I have a vision of a local metal sculptor taking the bridge sections and creating...something.. a wall piece to hang..or a giant mobile suspended from some ceiling in a large gallery space. So there you go...A challenge to the art community in Beacon. Make something from this rusting scrap pile that honors the Tioronda Bridge, once an example of American bridge engineering.
