Attention dumpster divers, sidewalk scavengers, and lovers of cool rusted metal objects! Anyone see this sculpture? It was accidentally thrown out over the weekend and its owners desperately want their wedding gift back.
This past Sunday, April 18th, the sculpture was last seen alongside a heaping pile of garbage bags at 180 India Street. The landlord of the building did some spring cleaning in the backyard and mistakenly tossed out the sentimental object of art.
The sculpture is approximately 18-24 inches high. It is mostly brown rusty-metal on a rocking base. The top of the sculpture is a yellow iron piece that looks kind of like a “Pac-man” head. It is pretty heavy.
The owners of the sculpture are offering a $100 reward for its safe return. If you picked it up or know the person who did, please contact Kevin at (917) 444-2584.
If you’re rummaging through your closets, getting down and dirty on some Spring cleaning this weekend and you happen to find a dusty old instrument that you will likely never use again, why not donate it to kids? WQXR is having an instrument drive from now until April 7th. You can easily drop instruments off at locations in all five boroughs. They recommend instruments that can be used in band and orchestra programs, including string instruments, brass, woodwinds, percussion and guitars – but they can’t accept pianos, organs, timpani, harps or any other instrument that cannot be hand-carried and the are not accepting recorders.
