I found this sad but not uncommon.... unfortunately. At the school that I graduated from, and where I volunteer at, the metal foundry is always under attack thru meetings and red tape. All we can do is support where one can. Californina I might add is the worst offender toward their state universities. The public sculpture displayed is in poor shape and its restoration.... I may see if I can get one piece I care about a great deal restored this year. unfortunately my car has been a problem and my mechanic refused service for no good reason after taking our money. If any one is in California steer clear or Shattuck's automotive. In any case, what is wrong with people today?!
