Huntington Sculpture Garden Vandalized

One of Jim Huntington’s large, outside sculptures on display at the Huntington Sculpture Foundation was vandalized on Saturday night.

Evidence was collected from the scene by the Williamson County Sheriff’s Department and surveillance video is being examined. According to Huntington, this is the first time his sculptures have been vandalized. He said, “I am going to rework this, one of my favorite sculptures dedicated to Hiromi Uehara, the brilliant young pianist, and hope that its new version is acceptable.”

Jim said, “I heard the woomph when it hit the ground and I said to myself, ‘OMG, I hope I am not under assault.’ I was.” He went on to say, “It was heartbreaking to have one of my favorite pieces damaged and it sickens me to think what is in store for the sculptures when I pass, if the culture keeps degrading to the degree it has been.”

If anyone in the area has any information that might help identify the culprits, please contact the Williams County Sheriff’s Office.

[Publisher’s Note: This would be a good time to pay a visit to the Huntington Sculpture Foundation and make a donation to help defray the cost of recreating this work of art. Take some time to look around and bathe in the subtle energies. Huntington’s works are already part of our heritage. The sculpture garden is a rare treasure and is one of the things that makes Coupland so unique.]

REPORT FROM A READER

On Monday, December 2nd, in late afternoon, my husband observed a man walking down CR 484 towards CR 467 and something didn’t feel right, so he called the non-emergency number of the Wilco Sheriff’s Office just to make a report. Apparently the man matched the description of a homeless man who had been picked up in the area previously and given a courtesy ride to Lee County. We only have contact info for a few of our neighbors, but we wanted folks in the area to know so they can be aware.

Thanks!!
