The Times' David Koon, who is blogging on the Arkansas Blog today, posted about more desecration of public art in Little Rock, this time at the Cox Center of the Central Arkansas Library System on River Market Avenue, across the parking lot from the Main Library.
CALS Director Bobby Roberts said this afternoon that sculptor Michael Warrick, the UALR professor who made the piece, has picked up the sculpture to repair it. Roberts said he believes it can be restored by sanding. The library will put in more pins and an epoxy glue to secure the sculpture when Warrick has repaired it.
Library cameras captured the three men who decided to knock the sculpture over about 2 a.m. Friday. "I'm sure they were drunk and thought it was a good idea," Roberts said.
