"Moment," a 1,500-pound steel work by British sculptor Sir Anthony Caro, begins its airborne journey Tuesday into the Portland Museum of Art's Joan B. Burns Sculpture Garden on High Street. Dr. Guido Goldman of Concord, Mass., donated the piece in honor of longtime museum trustee Leonard Nelson and his wife, Merle.

J.R. Cote, of Cote Crane-Rigging in Auburn, guides the work into place Monday. "Moment" is the Portland Museum of Art's second outdoor sculpture, joining Celeste Roberge's "Raising Cairn" in the Burns Sculpture Garden on High Street.
