Back in June when I saw how the GuitarTown sculptures were mounted I commented here how flimsy the mounting looked. I didn't say it then, but anyone with an electric saw or bolt cutter could probably get through the pipe or padlock before anyone noticed. The pipe is small and apparently not hardened steel and the padlock is on the small side considering the value of what it's protecting.
Gene Evans' Meow Meow, Moon, Meow at Waukesha County Museum is the first, and hopefully last, ten-foot sculpture to be cut from it's mount. Fortunately, it wasn't also stolen. This is an opportunity to improve the mount for this and all other outdoor-displayed sculptures. If nothing is done and it happens again?
