Dark Elegy

The Montauk artist behind "Dark Elegy"?a series of 76 nude, female figures depicting the moment they heard a loved one had died in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988?is hoping to find a more public, permanent home for the sculpture. After an advisory board in Washington, D.C. rejected the piece for fear the statues might offend or invite vandalism, Suse Lowenstein would love to see the work moved from her home on the East End to NYC: "It is such an international place and this would be an international statement." Ms. Lowenstein is willing to pay for all associated costs. "It just needs a home," she said. [The San Francisco Chronicle]
