WORCESTER (CBS) — Worcester police are still looking for vandals who defaced an Elm Park sculpture display over the weekend.
Six sculptures out of 28 were vandalized, and two were destroyed. But the annual “Art In The Park” went ahead with its grand opening on Sunday in spite of the damage.READ MORE: Giant Pothole Damages 20 To 30 Cars On Route 1 South In Lynnfield
“At one point I did think about canceling the whole thing, I will admit that,” Art In The Park Executive Director Gloria Hall said. “But. . . [the vandalism] doesn’t represent the whole city, it doesn’t represent those people who want to come and appreciate art.”
The remaining sculptures in the park can be seen through Oct. 11READ MORE: 3 Million Boppy Loungers Recalled After At Least 8 Infant Deaths
