I am pleased to report that after some 6,000 hours of repairs by Parks' Citywide Monuments Conservation Program (CMCP), Night Presence IV was reinstalled in September 2014 of this year and rededicated on October 7, 2014. CMCP conserved original components, replicated compromised sculptural features, built a non-corrosive stainless steel interior armature permitting air circulation and inhibiting water entrapment, and applied a protective coating. The project was supported by $140,000 in private donations, matched by the City. Those wishing to contribute to a scupture maintenance fund may call me at (212) 360-3410--Jonathan Kuhn, NYC Parks Director of Art & Antiquities
