Fountain of Life, St. John the Divine
This monstrosity, by Greg Wyatt, Columbia College 1971, is located on the grounds of the
Cathedral of St. John the
Divine. It is arguably the ugliest piece of public sculpture in New York City. It looks
as if it were welded together from bits and pieces of other sculptures found
left-over in a sculpting shop somewhere. Our neighborhood is truly gifted
in this respect: the second-ugliest piece of sculpture in the city,
Bellerephon Taming Pegasus, is over the entrance to Columbia Law School.
