Relocating Sid Boyum's sculpture pieces means discovering how he made them and figuring out how move them out of a very cramped backyard space that provides us with almost no space for heavy lifting equipment. In late April we decided to make a test move of the first piece. We chose the "Smiling Mushroom", because we thought we could manage it. Click here for a video clip of this sculpture move.
