The gazebo at the park.

Riverbank State Park needed a carousel. They had a beautiful park with lovely flowers and lots of things to do like sports and music. And they also had a neat little round house that was intended to be a place for a carousel. But no carousel.

Then, in 1993 Milo Mottola was invited to send photographs of his artwork to the Percent for Arts program. The Percent for Art (a program of the New York Department of Cultural Affairs) was looking for an artist to build a carousel for the park. After looking at the work of hundreds of artists, they invited ten, including Milo, to create detailed plans of how they would build a carousel.
