Really? Vandal or vandals damage mural in Columbia park
Juveniles suspected by police
From The State this morning:
“The mural was apparently damaged Sunday night. Columbia police have watched surveillance video from the parking lot, but so far no arrests have been made.
Park workers removed the graffiti Monday and Tuesday. However, the chemicals used also marred parts of the painting.
“’They did a decent job of getting the tag (graffiti) off, but it did some damage to the paint on the mural,’ said Lee Snelgrove, executive director of One Columbia for Arts and Culture. ‘It will require (the artist) to come back and touch up the areas.’”
