Yesterday, we finished installing The Couple. It was alot harder than we thought it would be. The bases are 5ftx5ftx3ft. So, moving them to the site was problematic. To make sure that the bases would withstand the elements, it was nailed and glued together with frames underneath to keep it secured. With the help of our partner Andrew Freedman House, it took three large movers to bring the sculpture piece down five flights and then by moving van to the grounds of Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum. Two days were needed to install the work in mixed weather.
