    Eileen Doktorski, a sculptor who had a studio on James Street in New Haven, was the first artist hired under the City's Percent for Art ordinance. Her work titled To Kiss the Earth, was meant to "blend the spirit of nature with that of space-age technology."

    Doktorski earned degrees in sculpture from Yale and Parsons School of Design and today is Professor of Art at Utah State University.
