New home for "New World"

Toledo sculptor Tom Lingeman's large scale work "New World" found it's new home yesterday. It was an amazing effort, "of nearly biblical proportions", to complete this 10 hour installation. With the tireless work of studio assistants Travis Sanderson and Paul Carter the Lingeman sculpture was permanently installed amidst the beautiful garden's of a local resident. The scale, nature and materials used by the artist to complete this masterful sculpture melds so perfectly with it's new surroundings, it's as if he had this location in mind from the work's inception. Those of you who had the opportunity to witness this piece in the gallery during Tom's exhibition in October of 2007 will remember it's powerful impact.
