ROSELAND, NJ - With an impressive 56 acres, two-story atrium lobby and color blocked offices, 56 Livingston Avenue in Roseland sits in a near perfect location. However, the owners of the office complex, Mountain Development Corporation, still believe it could be improved with one small addition. When the previous tenants left the building, they also took a sculpture which sat directly in front of the building’s entrance. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mountain Development Corporation, L. Robert Lieb has commissioned a new sculpture to be built at the location.
Lieb’s front-runner for the commission was New Jersey born sculptor Chad Fisher. Fisher is described as a figurative sculptor who most prefers working with bronze and marble. He began his studies at the age of seventeen at The Art Students League of New York. He then continued his education at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Schuylkill Academy of Fine Art, Janus Collaborative School of Art and Barnstone Studios before becoming an apprentice to renowned American Sculptor, Gary Weisman for five years.
One of Fisher’s most recent designs, “Moorestown Memories”, was created to commemorate his childhood New Jersey town and honor the community’s children; it was installed in Moorestown on Oct. 13, 2012.

In regards for his appreciation for Fisher, Lieb states that he has “admired his work for several years now” and describes the sculptor as “very talented.” Lieb also notes that, for the future, the corporation is “open to the type of sculpture we will commission.”
