Maine public sculpture to be relocated

After six years of negotiations, Bangor, Maine city council members voted to reposition one of the city's best known works of public art: Clark Fitz-Gerald's "Continuity of Community" from West Market Square in April 2012 according the the Bangor Daily News. Measuring nearly 60 square feet, the curvilinear odalisque will prove to be a challenging haul for a moving and relocation company.

Fitz-Gerald's abstract sculpture reflects nature, while not committing to a recognizable form. Like American sculptor Richard Serra, the environment and the patterns of wear from weather add to the viewer's experience. Relocation movers not only have to build a custom shipping crate to move the object, but must find ways to preserve the patina, as it is part of the sculpture's living history.

The council envisions Fitz-Gerald's work will be the central highlight amongst other iconic Bangor sculptures as they are placed together in a circular formation elsewhere in the city to be determined. Relocating the monument is part of Bangor's waterfront initiative, but transporting the art could be tedious, and best left to full-service movers.
