Crews to remove large rope art sculpture from Embarcadero BART station

Work got underway Monday to remove a huge public art sculpture from the Embarcadero BART station in San Francisco.

Crews put up scaffolding to start dismantling the 50-foot rope sculpture called "Legs."

When it was installed in the mid-1970s, it was bright orange and white.

However, grime from the BART trains made it so dirty that some now refer to it as a "hanging dish towel."

The artwork will be dismantled piece-by-piece and given back to the original artist.
