The Rower

The Rower
Use Policy

For over half a century the life-sized public sculptures by Polish artist Jerzy Jotka Kedziora have expressed his firm conviction that “Art must get out of museums and reach the people." This sculpture depicts a rower and is suspended above the lake, with it's movements in the wind simulating that of a real rower.
