Nails' Tales sculpture outside Camp Randall Stadium to be removed this week

MADISON, Wis. - The Nails' Tales sculpture outside Camp Randall Stadium is scheduled Wednesday for removal.

According to a UW-Madison news release, the sculpture's removal is part of the UW Field House South Plaza's upcoming redesign. Nails' Tales will be stored about 15 miles southeast of campus on university property.

UW-Madison will speak with campus and community stakeholders as well as the sculpture's artist, Donald Lipski, to determine a new site for the sculpture. 

The release said contractors will start preparing the site Monday and continue working through the end of August to take down the sculpture's foundation and restore the site for other uses. 

Reconstruction of South Plaza will begin in February 2020 and is set to be complete before the start of next year's football season.
