RICHMOND, Vt. — Police in Vermont say a community sculpture that was stolen on New Year’s Eve has been found.

The 13-foot metal sculpture that had sat at an intersection in Richmond was taken after 11 p.m. on New Year’s Eve. Creators Tim Clark and Baptiste LeFrancois had installed it on Dec. 18.

Clark told the Times Argus that the sculpture, which features three red cubes, was created to advertise the pair’s sculpting business and add some art to the community. He says the community had welcomed the art donation.

Clark said he believes the sculpture was taken to sell it at a scrapyard or as a prank.

Police say the piece was dropped off in the area Wednesday morning. Police are trying to determine who took it.
