Windhover returns from its makeover to its brand new pad

On Friday, a month to the day after the Windhover was removed from its home along Washington Street and sent off for a makeover, it returned to its new home sporting its new look. The new site along Third Street will have benches as well as landscaping and lighting to better display the Smithsonian piece of art. Workers from Methods and Materials Inc in Lake Bluff did the refinishing as well as the reinstallation. Committee member Erica Posthuma offered advice on the sculpture's new placement as the crew repositioned the piece. Other committee members are Susan Blumberg-Kason, Amy Cannon, Kirsten Douglass and Magda Sokolowski. A ceremony is planned for later this month. (Jim Slonoff photos)
