Curator (from Person Number):OglesbyDeaccession Date: 2023-02-27Deaccession Note: This piece had essentially been in the Garden on an informal, long-term loan for 21 years: the Garden had never purchased it. It had started to lean significantly, raising safety concerns. When contacted about it, the artist was willing to either take it apart and rebuild it with concrete (for a fee that would include the cost for the Garden to finally buy the sculpture plus time and materials) or simply remove the pieces from the Garden. We opted for the latter approach. NCBG staff dismantled the piece on Monday, February 27, 2023, and the artist came to get the stacked stones (on wooden pallets) starting later that afternoon.
