It was one of several abstract outdoor sculptures that made a stand in the mid-’70s. “Among the confusion and hustle of the city, they make a statement,” The Times quoted Doris Freedman, former head of the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs. “They assert an individual presence, they humanize the impersonality of the city,” she said.
