Art destroyed on Main Street
One of the sculptures, an abstract which was mounted on display in front of Liberty Bank on Main Street, has been destroyed.
The sculpture, part of Middletown's Main Street sculpture walk, had already been vandalized when someone punched a hole in one of its cast "drapings."
This morning, the entire exhibit was upended and smashed by some "art critic."
I suppose vandalism, like graffiti, is unavoidable, but its unfortunate that a display, not fifty yards from the Police Station, could be forcibly toppled and smashed.
