Location Notes

Sculpture was most recently located on the 3rd floor terrace, on the west side of the building. Sculpture was formerly located on the south side of the building (third floor).
Work was removed sometime in the 2010's and as of 2021 has not yet been put back on display, probably due to ongoing facilities work in that area of the building.
