restoration work for "Dark Star Park", Arlington. VA

The original metal work for the shadow patterns of the spheres and poles had severely corroded and shifted over the years. The metal bands had contained black asphalt and on the designated day every year the shadows cast by the spheres and poles should aline with the black asphalt pattern. The alignment was no longer correct. Versteeg Art Fabricators suggested a better solution and made weldments from stainless steel. These were then securely attached to cast concrete piers. This new shadow pattern will last for a very long time. We are always advising our customers on ways that their sculpture commission can be as maintenance free as possible.
