Public Art in Paterson

The City of Paterson Historic Preservation Commission is responsible for protecting, promoting, and preserving the Cityís historic environment, including the legacy of Gaetano Federici.

The City of Paterson Master Plan was adopted on May 27, 2014 which has given all of Federiciís public statues and monuments significant status in preparation for local designation and their future planning. In addition, the Commission has moved forward with the designation of the Pennington Park World War Memorial as of March 2015. This memorial was designed by architect Franklin Llewellyn Naylor and Federici in 1930. The monument was said to have been one of Federiciís most important commissions.

The Commission will continue to interpret and preserve the history of Federiciís life and work in Paterson. Some of these ways will be: 1) to include Federiciís home and studio to the Paterson Register of Historic Places. 2) continue the designation process for all of Federiciís public monuments and sculptures, and 3) provide guided tours to the public.
