Instead, it will be removed. That process has already begun and will be complete Monday, Union Station officials said.
In the storm, the sculpture detached from its hanging grid and prevented damage to the Station’s permanent structures, as it was designed to do in heavy winds, according to the release.
“After careful review of all options and considering the short number of weeks remaining for the installation, the financial requirements to repair the artwork and reinstall it were simply not justified,” Jerry Baber, Union Station executive vice president and COO, said in the release.
Union Station estimated about 100,000 people saw the sculpture in person while it was on display from May 18 through July 9.
