“Look and You Will Find It” featured six figurines until one was pried off sometime between Nov. 18 and Nov. 20, causing nearly $2,000 in damage. It was the fourth piece of public art vandalized on the Edina Promenade this year.
“These senseless acts do not represent the residents of Edina, and our growing reputation as a City known for its public art,” the release quoted Barbara La Valleur, chairwoman of the Edina Public Art Committee. “Vandalizing public art affects the livelihood of the artists. We’re hoping the missing piece of this statue will be returned.”
The fund is offering a reward “for information leading to the apprehension, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible” for the vandalism. Those with information can contact the Edina Police Department at 952-826-1600 any time of day. The identity of callers may remain confidential.
The Edina Crime Prevention Fund is the sole judge of any dispute regarding the reward, and any decision on any issue connected with the reward is final.
