Giant Apple Core

I called the woman at the Registration Desk and she reported that the Apple Core is out for restoration. She didn't know when it would be returned.

[Dwight Berner, 09/03/2019]

The Apple Core is a sculpture by famous artist Claes Oldenburg, so it probably won't be stuck for years in a garage somewhere.

Kentuck Knob is one of the last homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (who has nothing to do with the big apple, as far as we can tell).
