Hefty load delivered to Missoula Art Museum


MISSOULA, Mont. - The Missoula Art Museum had to bring in equipment to handle a hefty delivery today.

A semitruck brought in a large piece of art, so big the museum had to cut a hole in an outside wall and use a special lift to get it inside.   A team of people guided the difficult work.

The piece, protected with layers of tight wrapping, is called "The Jesus Corner." It is said to portray the harsh realities of American life that mainstream society fails to acknowledge.  It uses materials from a condemned building.

The public will have a chance to see it on September 13. The Jesus Corner exhibit stays in Missoula until January.
