Steven Siegel's Sculpture to be removed TODAY!

The work created by New York artist Steven Siegel, It goes under, will be removed from its location along the Laramie Greenbelt on October 27-29. The de-installation is expected to take 2 to 3 days. The community is welcome to stop by and watch the removal process.
Siegel was in Laramie last summer to create the sculpture on site. The location along the Laramie Greenbelt, near Commerce Street, offered a natural setting surrounded by pathways, roadways, and corporate structures. Known for his use of recycled material – red mulch, in this case – the Siegel created a meandering, earthworm-like form. Flooding of the Laramie River early in the installation process influenced the final form of It goes under.

Other sculptures in Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational remain throughout the Laramie community and on the University of Wyoming campus. For additional information on exhibitions, call the UW Art Museum at (307) 766-6622 or visit the museum website.
