Cleaning the Sculpture

April 28, 2016

It’s #Throwback Thursday and we’re throwing back to… just this morning, when this sculpture by Kenneth Herlihy at the entrance to the Radnor Trail was badly in need of cleaning. Often overlooked, the marble Moebius was covered in years’ worth of dirt and plant growth–to the point where it was hard to tell what the material even was! Fortunately, we have a trained conservator on staff. With a few hours and a little mild surfactant (soap) in water, you can once again see the marble surface. We think that passers-by will notice it now!
