Being invited to ashawagh hall summer of sculpture inspired changes which created big waves in the placement of my larger sculptures. These sculptures are intricate and enormous and miraculously transportable. Thank you to Loring Bolger and to Christina Mossaides Strassfield Museum Director/Chief Curator at Guild Hall for coordinating the Summer of Sculpture 2017. Your efforts began a new circulation of motion in my kinetic work.

Being featured in 27east is always an honor. The most read newspaper of the hamptons featuring a local artist reminds me of the support being from a small town really means. Thank you to Julia Halsey formaking that happen. Your timing couldn't have been more perfect with the juggling of these pieces. Along with finding new spaces they were given new perspectives with your words.

Strathmore Square meet robert mojo

Five Squares Developing pairs with our own Robert Mojo with an ambitious endeavor to recycle a decommissioned subway car. Creatively slicing the subway car into seven sections and turning them into kiosks allowing for local businesses to offer their services to transit commuters generating income for the community. Ron Kaplan of Five squares, can be credited for masterminding the plan and selecting a paramount in creativity and determination to exact the plan seamlessly. Thats where Mojo and his team tirelessly carved the subway car into smaller sections to be placed at the Strathmore Square in Bethesda, Maryland. Despite temperatures exceeding 90 degrees the retail pop-up ribbon cutting was held on Wednesday, May 17th 2017 successfully drawing a huge crowd. The commuters and community alike all seemed to enjoy the new use of space.  

An artist who is best known for breathing new life into discarded remains Mojo took on this project with enthusiasm and gusto. With tons of scrap from the train's underbelly Mojo went on to create a sculpture with the leftover aluminum and spare parts soon to be on display with WMATA. Provided below are links to some of the media coverage that the project brought about.

Synopsis

Synopsis

As you've been shopping for your fresh vegetables, flowers and fruits of late at the Hayground farm field in Water Mill, you will certainly have noticed a rather large, colorful sculpture created by East End native, Robert "Mojo" Mojeski. The sculpture, entitled "Synopsis," moves with the wind, and complements the surrounding landscape. If you have missed it for some reason, than while sitting in traffic along 27, look for his piece "The Tipping Point XIX" across from The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack.
