We have the opportunity to collect a set of large sculptures made of
a white hydrocal plaster reinforced with burlap.   I can send
pictures upon request?

Would it be possible to display outdoors?  Outdoors with a cover?
How well does this material withstand changes in temperature and
relative humidity?
