Did Red Teepee have to be removed?

The artwork was surveyed by several art professionals and conservation experts regarding its condition. Red TeepeeĀ did not have an adequate foundation created for long-term display and required a new foundation and footing be created in order to safely secure the artwork. The City considered these factors before making the decision to remove Red Teepee. The City’s highest priority is the safety and well-being of the public which ultimately drove the decision to dismantle and remove the sculpture from Lucchesi park.
