    Restoration of a Claes Oldenburg "Typewriter Eraser" Sculpture for the installation at the MGM public sculpture park in Las Vegas.
Sculpture restoration project for the MGM Las Vegas public sculpture garden.  Sculpture had previously been damaged during an ownership change and a less then adequate packing and shipping conditions.  It was then in need of a complete and cosmetic refurbishment.  Each tube is approx. 20'in length and made from solid Stainless Steel. Overall the sculpture weighs approx 20k lbs.  This was a carefully orchestrated rigging and disassembly task before any refurbishment could take place. All tube/ bristles were repaired, scuffed and repainted. The clasp/ silver section we was retouched and repaired to original specs. All was then reassembled and fixtured for transportation and installation.
