The Walker's yellow cherry

Spoonbridge and Cherry, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden's iconic centerpiece, is getting refurbished, and right about now you'd hardly recognize it. The cherry's been removed from the spoon and shipped to Hugo, Minn., to be sandblasted (above) and resurfaced. A coat of yellow primer (below) will be followed by "another coat of grey epoxy primer, followed by a green fairing compound (similar to bondo), followed by even more layers of primer, paint, and clear-coat." Follow the progress on the museum's Flickr page. (Currently, there are only these two shots.)

Thanks for this Paul! I'm mentioning it in tonight's Good Question segment at 10pm on WCCO.
