Re: "Energy Loop" (Asheville, NC) to be restored

Here (finally) are some pictures of Energy Loop in its new site:





I am pleased that a spacious site was found that gives dignity to the sculpture.

Re: "Energy Loop" (Asheville, NC) to be restored

I picked up the thread with the pictures of the sculpture in its new location, without reading the back story, and immediately felt that this was a good example of an outdoor piece in just the right place. Surrounding buildings, scale, seem just right. Seems a good solution to the development preservation tangle in at least this one case.
I read in these threads some time ago about laws protecting public sculpture, which I am dubious about, but I guess that such did not exist here, at least not mentioned above.
Apropos of nothing I see that Sotheby's just sold Warhol's silk screen of bills for 40 million and change.

Re: "Energy Loop" (Asheville, NC) to be restored

For anyone else who may arrive at this page without reading the previous page, I will just re-state that “Energy Loop” is a sculpture by Dirck Cruser, who died in 1996. It was installed in City-County Plaza in Asheville, NC in 1982. Due to a re-design of City-County Plaza, it was relocated after being restored.
