Re: 32 foot stainless virgin
I seem to remember hearing about that piece about the time of its commissioning, or maybe beginning of construction. I lived in Delaware about 1963 - '66 or thereabouts for a couple of years, and noticed later references to the state.
It's an excellent work, I agree, but I know nothing more about it. I especially love the contemporary feel of the face, and respect the drapery, etc., as well as I can see it in this photo.
