Assault on public art, part deux

Posted By on Mon, Nov 26, 2012 at 9:57 AM

Last week, we told you about the theft of three bronze sculptures from the Vogel-Schwartz Sculpture Garden in Riverfront Park, with police saying they believe the thefts were the work of scrap metal thieves.

Dawn found another blow to Little Rock public art this morning, with artist Michael Warrick's "Fusion, 2009" sculpture — a large, carved ball of Indiana limestone — lying tumped over and badly damaged on the concrete. The sculpture stands just to the south of the Cox Center near the CALS Main Library, and was dedicated in memory of former CALS employee Vernon C. Johnson, Sr., who died in 2006.

This is why we can't have nice things:
