A Present for Magdeburg
On the 15th of June the city of Magdeburg received a new piece of art. Mayor Dr. Lutz Trümper and Otto von Guericke alias Wolfgang Emmrich unveiled the magnificent sculpture with Magdeburg’s hemisphere experiment at Ratswaage plaza in the city centre. “As of today there is a new symbol for Magdeburg as a city with traction power,” said Dr. Trümper. Afore Dr. Peter Transfeld handed over the mayor a deed of gift for the created artwork; it had been made by the sculptor Prof. Thomas Virnich, who was also attending.
