Kehinde Wiley’s ‘Rumors of War’ unveiled at VMFA

It is with great pride and satisfaction that we have successfully helped to facilitate the move and placement of Rumors of War, the statue by Kehinde Wiley created in response to Confederate monuments in the South, from Times Square to its permanent home at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA). His subject is a reimagined version of the Confederate general Jeb Stuart, created by Frederick Moynihan in 1907. It was an honor for ABC to realize the massive limestone plinth to support the revolutionary artists’ work. At over 80,0000 pounds of bronze, steel, and stone, the installation in Times Square and in Virginia had to be technically perfect and we are so pleased with the results. Special thanks to UAP Company, Emily Johnson, Precision Stone,¬†Picco Engineering, Integrated Structures, and Don McGee for your tireless efforts. Extra thanks to Kehinde Wiley for the trust and impeccable vision.
