Missing Member at UNE gallery

The West End News reported on a striking attack of vandalism at a local art exhibit:
Penis Hacker Loose in Portland
An unknown person went into the sculpture garden of the Art Gallery at the University of New England on the night of June 17th and hacked off the penis of a
two-foot high clay sculpture that was on exhibit.

The sculptor, Munjoy Hill artist Nancy Nevergole, had been asked the previous day to remove the sculpture. Nevergole discovered the vandalism when she arrived to remove the sculpture. The statue was part of the annual Sculpture Garden Invitational held at the UNE gallery. The missing piece has not been found.
