FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A large steel sculpture damaged by a truck that barreled across the lawn of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art has been repaired and could return home soon.

Museum Executive Director Charles A. Shepard III says the abstract steel sculpture “Helmholtz” depicting a bull could be back in Fort Wayne between mid-May and late June.

The 8-ton, 26-foot-tall sculpture made largely of steel I-beams was damaged last June 16 when police say Colton Adamonis of Fort Wayne drove into it.

Shepard tells The News-Sentinel that artist Mark di Suvero and his staff “were able to fix it perfectly.” The sculpture had been taken apart in August and shipped by truck to di Suvero’s studio in Petaluma, Calif., for repair. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
