Arts Council Restores Arthur Silvermané─˘s é─˙Aluminum Attitudesé─¨

é─˙Aluminum Attitudes,é─¨ a public art sculptural work by New Orleans artist, Dr. Arthur J. Silverman is receiving a much needed cleaning. Commissioned in 1993 by the Arts Council of New Orleans through the Percent For Art program, é─˙Aluminum Attitudes,é─¨ is installed on the Elysian Fields neutral ground near Leon C. Simon.

é─˙The aluminum sculptures are identical, just posed in different ways é─ý hence, the term attitudes,é─¨ Silverman said. Since its installation, the artwork has never required major repairs. This month, a conservation team led by John Buckner of Arthur Silverman Home, LLC, is reversing years of environmental exposure and is also employing conservation measures for future preservation of the artwork. Restoration of this and other public art pieces is part of the Arts Councilé─˘s effort to restore the Cityé─˘s Percent For Art collection for the benefit of the neighborhoods and communities in which they are placed.  Continued »
