Sculptures In The Streets: artists to consider removing their installations

Sculptures In The Streets is a name of a very interesting cultural event. The City of Brno approached several artists and ask them to install some of their works of art in the streets of Brno.

However some artists are considering removing their works of art from the streets altogether because some drunken and/or bored idiots have been damaging them. One artifact can be rolled if knocked over, which is exactly what some people did yesterday. The exhibit was found about 1 kilometer from the place of installation. These are not just any sculptures. One artist offered a set of bronze statues worth CZK 600,000 each and seeing them being damaged really pisses him off.

According to the Brnensky denik daily the statues can not be insured because they are publicly accessible. Which is why one of the artist “promised” that “if the installation sustains one tiny scratch, I am taking it back”.
