The Bank of America Art Program commissioned sculptor Mark Lindquist to re-install three sculptures originally purchased in 1992.  Lindquist worked with the Balfour Beatty team, Little, and Mary Edith Alexander, Curator of BOA's Art Program to prepare and complete the installation in Founder's Hall, a recently completed newly renovated space in Bank of America Corporate Headquarters in Charlotte, NC.

Mark Lindquist and studio assistant Spencer Bennett (from Henniker, NH)  spent a week in Charlotte, NC in 2010, retrofitting the three totemic sculptures and installing them on a custom made steel and stone base at Bank of America Corporate Headquarters, Founder's Hall.  Following are images of the process.
