Winds reaching up to 60 m.p,h. knocked down Preston Jackson's work last weekend at the quad.  "Travels of My Seven Sisters" has been on show in the area between University Hall and the Health and Science Building since last September.  Torrential wind and water logged soil caused the piece to collapse unexpectedly on Sunday.  The Art Department carefully removed Jackson's work on Monday and said it was not harmed.  The new location of Jackson's piece is uncertain as of now.
