ISU Sculpture Garden Vandalized


By James Steward

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Officials at Iowa State are searching for four bicyclists they say vandalized a pair of sculptures on campus.

Nancy Girard, who works for the Iowa State University Museums, says two sculptures on loan from American artist Bill King were vandalized Sunday in the Anderson Sculpture Garden.

The Ames Tribune reports that the estimated damage to the art work is roughly $2,500. King has been notified of the incident, and museum staff says it's done what it can to quickly repair the sculptures.

The attack was caught on surveillance video. The university recently installed cameras overlooking the sculpture garden.
