Houdini statue to be placed in storage, relocatedAdmit it: This statue, inspired by Harry Houdini and one of his chained escapes from a trunk, is freakin’ cool.

“Metamorphosis” is on display outside the Appleton Art Center in Appleton, Wisc. It is displayed on a large, brick platform made to resemble a stage, and rests on a plot of land where the magician’s childhood home once stood. And if you go there, you can see it live and in person — for the next few days, anyway.

As renovations continue at the center, the statue will be placed in storage for a few, then moved to another location to be decided by Appleton Downtown Corp.

When things go into storage, we get a little nervous. Especially when it’s art, which ought to be seen. Justin Robert Young over at iTricks reports that a final location has not been decided yet, and that you can give your opinion about where it should go.
