It's been months in the making, and it's finally arrived in Times Square in New York City.

UNC Ashevile engineering students and one art student put together a sculpture, which they called "Wake." It was designed to make a statement about climate change. It's 40 feet high and has a figurehead of 19th century opera star Jenny Lind.

The art piece will sit on the plaza at 46th Street. The big unveil is set for 1 p.m. Wednesday.
