Regarding the Relocation of Sculpture:

In 2004, Haydn received a call from a local Real Estate Developer. Plans for a new downtown condo development the developer explained, left no room for one of Haydn's large pieces which had stood for years at Harbourfront's entrance.

Because the sculpture had become a landmark in the area, the developer understood its significance and was offering the sculpture to Haydn in an effort to find a new home.

Having received the sculpture for free, Haydn could donate it to an interested gallery. Within days Haydn found a new home for what is now "Algoma Blue" at the Art Gallery of Algoma in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario.

Haydn accomplished this feat several times in his career, in one case moving a piece from Vancouver to Toronto, where it appeared as part of a summer show at the Guild Inn, then finally to its permanent home in Cambridge Ontario.

Curators are usually happy to cover the modest cost of dismantling, moving, refurbishing and installing a donated piece of sculpture. It represents a new acquisition for an art gallery and may well have an asset value of as much as ten times the modest cost of relocation.

An enthusiastic local media covers the installation of Sault Ste. Marie's new acquisition, "Algoma Blue".
