Bob Schuler (1925-2017)

In 1986, the High Falls artist began the Tethys Project, a sort of personal time capsule  that would become his primary artistic endeavor for the rest of his life. Each side of each cube was incised (via sandblasting) with images, glyphs, poetic statements, as well as the latitude and longitude for each block—all created and designed by the artist. The idea was that the Tethys Project would be as close to a permanent artistic statement as possible, with the submerged granite blocks discovered hundreds or thousands of years from now, if then.
