A Big day for Big Steel

Today 9500 lbs of steel arrived on site, all of which had to be carried by hand up to the sculpture court. The heaviest piece is a bit more than 650 lbs, and vather awkward. We managed, thanks to a great crew of volunteers and the team from Matarozzi Pelsinger Builders. By the end of the day 3/4 of the plinth was assembled in place and level.

The first steel arrives onsite at 9 am. The first of two trailers full of ochre goodness.

Celebration when the final pieces of steel are on the sculpture court.

Most of the steel laid out and set up on the isolation bases. It rocks! (literally...) Only 6 more sections to put in. A lot of good work for one day. Thank you, everybody!
