Crews from the Walker Art Center and Rocket Crane reinstall Roy Lichtenstein’s Salute to Painting on the Vineland Terrace on 12/12/13. The sculpture is a big colorful brush stroke by the late Roy Lichtenstein, which was given to the Walker back in the 1990s by former board members in honor of then director Martin Friedman. The sculpture has been in storage for past year while the 1971 wing of the building, designed by architect Edward Larrabee Barnes, was re-bricked. The $8 million re-bricking project is now complete, so the sculpture is being reinstalled.] Bruce Bisping/Star Tribune bbisping@startribune.com
