BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — You have less than a month to check out the giant number sculptures at Buffalo's Outer Harbor.

“As the sun sets on another spectacular summer, we are sad to see [Robert] Indiana’s sculptures leave the Outer Harbor but Buffalo is fortunate to have hosted these bold, iconic sculptures at Wilkeson Pointe,” said Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation Chairman Robert Gioia.

World-famous artist Robert Indiana created the popular exhibit called ONE through ZERO (The Ten Numbers). Crews will begin uninstalling the giant steel sculptures starting October 1.

Indiana was an American artist known for his reoccurring motifs in his artwork. He died at the age of 89 last year.

“The museum was delighted to collaborate with our colleagues at ECHDC to bring these monumental works to such a vital, active public space,” said Albright-Knox Curator of Public Art Aaron Ott. “I hope that many Western New Yorkers will take the opportunity to see them before October 1.”

The steel sculptures located at Wilkeson Pointe are 8-feet-high and weigh close to a ton. The exhibit has been on display at the Buffalo Outer Harbor since June of 2018.
