18 statues vandalized in Grant Park

Chicago police are looking for the vandals who tagged life-size human sculptures at Grant Park.

18 of 26 statues were tagged with graffiti at the Grant Park Conservancy at East Jackson Drive and South Michigan Avenue.

Bob O’Neill, president of the Grant Park Conservancy, said the incident happened late Friday night or early Saturday.

Taggers reportedly used two different graffiti signatures.

O’Neill believes more than one vandal was behind it.

The public art exhibition titled “Borders” are on loan from Icelandic artist Steinunn Thórarinsdóttir and were installed in August in a garden named after Sir George Solti.
