Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- A 64-foot abstract sculpture weighing 198,000 pounds now graces the entrance to the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences in Charleston.
Albert Paley's "Hallelujah" sculpture was delivered to West Virginia's capital city from Rochester, N.Y., in 12 pieces and four ribbons.
Crews used a 115-ton crane to hoist the metal parts off flatbeds.
The $900,000 sculpture is made of corten steel, stainless steel and bronze and took three months to construct.
Paley has designed about 50 large-scale sculptures, including a 100-foot sculpture installed last year at the National Harbor in Arlington, Va.
An Oct. 6 dedication is planned.
