The “Tau” sculpture undergoes restoration

HUNTER COLLEGE–There’s something missing from the entrance of the West building on 68th Street and Lexington Avenue: the giant black cube-like sculpture, more formally known as the Tau, has been removed from the spot it has occupied since 1984.

According to a spokesperson for the college, the sculpture has been relocated to an indoor storage facility to be assessed for restoration. While the Tau is gone, there will also be some renovations done to the area where the sculpture was located. Leaks in the surface have affected the campus facilities beneath the area.
