Many of Don Wiegand’s memorable sculptures were crafted for outdoor exhibits. These monuments may be found at such places as the Churchill Museum in Fulton, Missouri, Mid-America Transplant in St. Louis and Busch Memorial Stadium.
These sculptures are incredibly rich, from deep textures and minute detail to highly polished mirror-like surfaces. Most often cast in bronze, these pieces are subjected to the ravages of the weather, dirt, grime and other contaminants, all of which work to lessen the visual quality of the presentation. For that reason, these sculptures must undergo professional restoration from time to time.
The Wiegand Foundation offers a restoration service to those who have commissioned such pieces. The process is painstaking and may require several days for completion. At the end of the process, the Wiegand sculpture is restored to its original detail and luster.
