Loved by some, loathed by others, David Adickes' 1982 21-ton cement-on-steel musician is a Theater District landmark. – In Short
The big white fiddler's repertoire is primarily baroque, piped out of an attached speaker, and three smaller accompanists stand behind "him." This magical instrument plays the world's most treasured classics without any trace of human intervention.Fans of Adickes' nonsonic work, however, will want to drive north up I-45 and have a gander at "Tribute to Courage" (1994)--the colossal statue of Sam Houston in Huntsville, where that great Texan breathed his last.
