Aquarium of the Americas sculpture restored with $250,000 grant

A set of 19 Audubon Aquarium of the Americas sculptures titled “Aquatic Colonnade” is being restored, thanks to a  $250,000 government grant. Last week, in a warehouse near the foot of the Huey P. Long Bridge, an artist meticulously painted black spots on the yellow tail of a huge, abstract aluminum prawn. A school of other oddly shaped, sheet metal sea creatures spread out across the floor.
