Fritz Koenig’s Sphere for Plaza Fountain will be relocated to Liberty Park at the National September 11 Memorial plaza in New York. The work was installed in front of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers in 1971 and was badly damaged during the September 11 terror attacks. The bronze sculpture, which stretches twenty-five feet high and weighs twenty-five tons, has been on temporary view in Battery Park since its restoration concluded in 2002.
