This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Greensboro, Alabama, Scott Burton received his B.A. from Columbia University and his M.A. from New York University. Burton had over 30 solo exhibitions and performances and dozens of group exhibitions nationally and internationally, including exhibitions at the Tate Gallery in London and the Boymans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam. His work is in numerous permanent collections including the Museum of Modern Art and the National Gallery of Art. In addition to the Sheepshead Bay project, he also worked as a team member on the design of the plaza for the World Financial Center at Battery Park City. Burton died in 1989.

Artist Statement:

"When designing for a public site, I try to imagine how people will behave naturally in the space, how they will move, where they want to sit, where the sun, view, and human activity will be. For materials and forms I take my cue from the setting. My greatest challenge with the Sheepshead Bay project was to discover how my contribution as an artist would fit into this very practical and down-to-earth setting."
-- Burton, 1987
