(WXYZ) - A pendulum art piece outside of the Padnos Hall of Science at Grand Valley State University is expected to be reinstalled on Tuesday, November 12.
The bifilar pendulum had to be removed this summer after students started uploading pictures and videos of themselves riding it naked, imitating pop star Miley Cyrus' latest "Wrecking Ball" music video.
Tim Thimmesch, associated vice president for facilities services, says educational signs about the artwork will also be installed as part of the project.
"The new installation will be representative of a scientific art exhibit and include a reconstructed site that limits access and compliments the original intent of the sculpture," said Thimmesch on the school's website.
