    SKYBORNE SCULPTURE -- THE SKYSCRAPERS OF MANHATTAN PROVIDE A STRIKING BACKGROUND TO A MULTI-LEGGED SLUMINUM SCULPTURE, AS IT WAS AIRLIFTED FROM MANHATTAN WHERE IT WAS CONSTRUCTED, TO THE TOWER OF LIGHT PAVILION AT THE NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR. SNELSON'S ARRANGEMENT OF SUSPENDED ALUMINUM TUBES COMPRISE ONE OF THE LARGEST PIECES OF SCULPTURE EVER CREATED IN THIS MEDIUM. THE 35 FOOT WIDE, 30 FOOT HIGH SCULPTURE IS HELD IN PLACE BY A NETWORK OF STAINLESS STEEL CABLES. THE SCULPTURE WILL BE ERECTED AT THE ENTRANCE WAYS TO THE TOWER OF LIGHT AND SUPPORT THE ENTRANCE SIGN TO THE PAVILION.
