At 6:30 p.m., “Sky Woman” will be unveiled at the northeast corner of William and Lincoln Streets. Designed by Audrey Iwanicki, this bronze sculpture honors the Cayuga Nation and Haudenosaunee Confederacy. The life-sized female figure holds three stainless steel rings representing the sun, earth, and sky, which turn in the wind. The bronze base symbolizes a tortoise shell.
