Advertisement for Bids

The City of New Ulm is accepting bids for a decommissioned art Sculpture. “Back and Forth” was created by New Ulm artist Helene Fesenmaier in her studio in London, England. It was installed in the New Ulm Public Library in 1978. The Sculpture consists of three steel shafts which rotate slowly on pedestals. The Sculpture was decommissioned in 2002. At the time of decommissioning, it was not working properly and has not been started since 2002, it is unknown if it is operable. Since that time, it has been moved to various City storage facilities. It has been exposed to mold and at times it has been partially submerged under water. The Sculpture is incomplete since it is missing the six (6) wood beams that are sandwiched between the metal pieces.

Bids must be delivered to the Office of the Finance Director, City Hall Building, 100 North Broadway, New Ulm, Minnesota 56073 no later than10:00 A.M. on Friday, December 4, 2020. The bids will be publicly opened in the City Hall Council Chambers and read by the Finance Director at that time.

For information and pictures of the sculpture please visit https://www.ci.new-ulm.mn.us/advertisementfor_bids. Individuals wishing to view the Sculpture should contact Chris Dalton at (507) 233-2112.
