Beginning August 5, Joseph Hirshhorn's sculpture collection is moved from his home in Greenwich, Connecticut, to the new Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden. Many of the pieces were brought to the Garden via helicopter, including Rodin's "Burghers of Calais" and "Balzac," as well as Henry Moore's "Glenkiln Cross," each of which weighs several thousand pounds. The move of the collection was paid for entirely by Hirshhorn.More
