In the Canberra Times Claire Low is getting to the bottom of the missing fat men of the “On The Staircase” sculpture.
Director of artsACT David Whitney told Today the missing man was discovered on Monday morning, so the theft occurred some time over the past weekend.
The theft and damage was reported to ACT Policing and officers attended on Monday. They are investigating. This includes a review of closed circuit television footage. However, the surveillance of the artwork was reduced over the weekend because of the Multicultural Festival’s tents.
One hopes future public art is built drunk-proof.
