A Sculpture in Search of a Home Rises Again: ‘Orpheus and Apollo,’ Created by Richard Lippold for Lincoln Center, is reinstalled at La Guardia Airport
by Hilarie M. Sheets
LW! partnered with the Preservation League of New York State in asking Lincoln Center to return the site-specific Orpheus and Apollo (the first piece of public art commissioned for Lincoln Center) to the lobby of the Philharmonic Hall where it once completed the facade.
Identified as one of their Seven to Save sites, our advocacy helped keep it in America and it is reinstalled at LGA.
It also instigated our district-wide Public Art Survey.
