PATERSON, N.J. A symposium on artist and sculptor Gaetano Federici takes place Saturday, June 4 at Lambert Castle in Paterson.
In a career that spanned more than half a century, Federici went on to complete many statues and monuments, with at least 40 commissioned within a two-mile radius of Paterson's City Hall.
Whether statues, plaques, or lunette carvings (like that of the Archangel Overpowering Lucifer atop St. Michael's door on Cianci Street), they all have a distinctive mark of historical storytelling.
The event is sponsored by the Paterson Historic Preservation Commission, Passaic County Historical Society and Passaic County Community College.
Cost is $10 per person and advanced registration is required. For more information and to make a reservation contact Kelly C. Ruffel, 973-321-1220 ext. 2263, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make checks to City of Paterson Trust Fund, and mail to: City of Paterson Historic Preservation Commission, 125 Ellison St., 4th Floor, Paterson, NJ 07505.
Lambert Castle is located at 3 Valley Road, Paterson.
