‘Vale’ gets a new home in NC’s capital city

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009



RALEIGH — Three-thousand pounds of painted steel is getting a new home in North Carolina’s capital city.

“Vale” is a sculpture by Greensboro artist Jim Gallucci that used to sit behind the state library building in the view of school children, who often eat lunch on nearby picnic tables while on field trips.

The sculpture is a minimalist interpretation of a mountain valley in steel. It was taken down more than two years ago so Gallucci could restore it. On Tuesday, Cultural Resources Secretary
Linda A. Carlisle will welcome the sculpture to the intersection of Jones and Wilmington streets in downtown Raleigh.

“Vale” was one of the first pieces selected for the Artworks for State Buildings collections, which comprises 100 works by 78 artists from North Carolina.
