BUILDING THE LABYRINTH
ALFRED STATE COLLEGE
Woven into the fabric of Alfred State College is a commitment to Civic Engagement. The institution recognizes their impact within Allegany County and makes it a priority to collaborate within their community for projects as much as they can. See the Alfred State College Center for Civic Engagement's Website.
Department of Heavy Equipment Operations
Alfred State College's Heavy Equipment Operations Department and Professor Vinny Grottanelli volunteered to grade and the Fassett lot prior to the installation of the labyrinth. They were also generous enough to install extra water and electricity conduits beneath the labyrinth.
Department of Masonry
Alfred State College's Masonry Department has volunteered to construct the labyrinth for Art for Rural America. The installation was pushed back several months in 2018 due to inclement weather, but masonry professor, Steve Richard, is dedicated to this community project and is working with AFRA to install the bricks properly.
