Scope and Contents
Scope and Contents
Correspondence relating to the repair and preservation Cohen's sculpture by George Rickey, including a photocopy of a letter, Feb. 2, 1977, from Cohen to Rickey concerning Rickey's repair on the damaged sculpture, which Cohen feels "caused it to lose some of its grace. The arts no longer taper to as delicate a point..."; a 2 p. reply from Rickey, Apr. 7, justifying his method of repair, telling Cohen "you should give the piece as a whole a chance to re-assert its qualities of choreography and performance, which are still exactly what they were, but now far more secure"; and a memo from the George Rickey Workshop on "Surface Discoloration of Stainless Steel Sculptures in Maritime Climates."
