BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – It’s not known who erected the 15-foot sculpture on a Boulder museum’s lawn, but it’s no mystery who took it down.
Six city workers lowered, dismantled and drove the object away Monday, a week after it appeared overnight in front of the Boulder History Museum. The city said last week it would remove the sculpture if the artist didn’t.
A similar sculpture remains in a Boulder woman’s yard. Donna Coughlin is waiting, hoping the artist will come by to retrieve it.
Both pieces have metal posts with such recycled items as skis and metal chains protruding from the top.
Coughlin tells The Daily Camera that she suspects University of Colorado graduate Mark Guilbeau, who left her a giant bug sculpture in 1987.
