ALLENDALE, Mich. – Work was underway Tuesday at Grand Valley State University’s Allendale campus to reinstall a pendulum sculpture which has recently been at the center of controversy.
The “Wrecking Ball” is being returned to campus after it was removed after several students were caught riding it. They were making parody videos of Miley Cyrus’ pop single “Wrecking Ball.”
The piece of art has been a fixture outside the Seymour and Esther Padnos Hall of Science since 1995. Students started a campaign called “Reinstall the Ball,” demanding that the university put it back there.
