ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis riverfront statue of explorers Lewis and Clark is getting a new home that its creator hopes will mean less time underwater for the Mississippi River tribute.

Sculptor Harry Weber tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1kzrZTf ) that the 23-foot bronze statue just south of the Eads Bridge will move to an undetermined location once the weather improves.

Weber says he and donors who paid for the artwork worry that further water damage could irrevocably damage the statue. One possible site is a nearby perch on Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard that is not on the levee. Others favor a spot near the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park.
