Westcott Outdoor Chess Table

Installed at the Westcott Community Center, September 2019

This installation is art with a purpose and our hope is to bring additional public Chess Tables to other areas in our neighborhood and to inspire other neighborhoods to do the same.  In this neighborhood chess sets are available to borrow at the Petit Library on Victoria Place off Westcott Street or you can bring your own.  The WACC thanks the City of Syracuse for allowing us to place the chess table on this property.

This Chess Table was designed to be accessible to people utilizing wheelchairs.  The unique design allows the table to turn so one can play who is not able to sit on the bench.

This Chess Table Installation was designed and installed by Cosmo Fanizzi and James Owen at Factory Park Studios.
