A stunning copper and bronze sculpture by the artist and modern furniture designer, Harry Bertoia, will return to public view after it is repaired and conserved. The work, Free Interpretation of Plant Forms, was designed in 1967 for the Philadelphia Civic Center and has been tucked away in a purpose-built storage unit since 2000. The sculpture, which belongs to the city of Philadelphia, will go on view on the grounds of the Woodmere Art Museum.
