Major progress happening on the new sculpture facility. All of the Asbestos has been abated (as shown in photo 1) The demolition of the 1960’s wing is complete. The rest of the debris has since been removed, and the Kasco team is currently grading the new site and getting ready to pour footings for the new structure. Looking forward to a new, over 800 square foot larger facility in September. So excited! Think Sculpture @ EMU!
