Sculpture Removed-Wrecking Ball

In a Sept. 25, 2013 photo provided by Grand Valley State University, students pass the site of a swinging sculpture that was removed from school grounds in Allendale, Mich., on Sept. 17 after students used it to mimic a Miley Cyrus video in which she rides, naked, on a wrecking ball. Grand Valley State University said the bifilar pendulum will be reinstalled Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013, outside of the Padnos Hall of Science. The sculpture is nearly 40 years old and had been outdoors since 1995. Its return to the 24,500-student campus comes after review by a committee that included physics and engineering students along with school officials. 252 (AP Photo/Grand Valley State University)
