Restoration of Nimbus
Alaska State Museum Building, Juneau, Alaska

In 1978, Robert Murray's large-scale public sculpture Nimbus was installed at the Dimond Courthouse in Juneau, Alaska. Having been the subject of much public controversy over the years, Murray has recently overseen the restoration of the ten-ton steel sculpture to its original brilliance. Intended to reference the striking appearance of an iceberg, the work may now be seen on its current site outside of the new Alaska State Museum building.
