Penetrable Amarillo

I had the opportunity to go by the Museum of Fine Arts yesterday during the rolling blackouts and noticed something odd:

The yellow tubes that normally hung in the frame in the Jesus Rafael Soto “Penetrable Amarillo” sculpture were missing.

Is the exhibition moving elsewhere, or is this a part of a scheduled cleaning of the tubes?

Inquiring minds would like to know.

    my friend and i visited the mfa about a month ago, and we thought it was a nice way to express strings of spaghetti through an airborne water distiller through the means of art.

    i didn’t know it was called “Penetrable Amarillo” lol.. ah, thanks. :)

    I’m pretty sure that this was called “Vibrations.” That’s what I remember reading on the little placard that used to be out there. If this is gone I’m going to be pissed, because I took a lot of pictures there.
