Hope you and your loved ones are doing fine. I wanted to clarify a situation about the sculpture in Sacramento: The people from the "Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission" bought the "Sojourner"
sculpture in 1998, for an irresistible price from my Mother. Legally they can do what ever they want with the sculpture as it belongs to them ( not to the State of California, not the Federal Government, not the Mayor of Sacramento). Morally they have a compromise with the public (they say they are fixing it).
You showed interest on this piece for the city of Oakland. What we could do is make a new one for the city of Oakland. It would cost approximately $280, 000.00 $ US, that would be for production and transport. setting in location, producing a platform and mounting the piece, it would have to be payed by the people in Oakland.
It would be beautiful if this project could lift off. It would have to be organised on your side as I do not know the contacts. Let me know what you think.
Peace Brother and a warm hug.
