GIANT SOFA
Columbus to refurbish, relocate giant limestone sculpture of sofa that had attracted homeless

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, July 12, 2014 4:39 PM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


An 8,000-pound limestone sculpture of a sofa has been removed from its spot in a trendy Columbus neighborhood, after becoming a favored perch for homeless nappers.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the giant couch was removed from the Short North Arts District Friday. It's being sent back to Akron artist Robert Huff for a six-month refurbishment.

Plans are for it to return to the city as the centerpiece of the Columbus Cultural Arts Center's sculpture garden. Its current site on High Street will continue as a small park.

A Short North civic leader said homeless activity surrounding the sculpture wasn't contributing to the Short North's vitality.

A resident who formerly slept on the couch when he was homeless said he saw the structure as a refuge, but not a home.
