WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - An artist who made a sculpture included in the “Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!” public art exhibit in Lafayette and West Lafayette says she will repair a piece damaged by vandals.

Artist Sara Furbush, who created the bear with Morgan Asay, an art teacher at Happy Hollow Elementary School, tells the Journal and Courier (https://on.jconline.com/1KRGHyX ) she found two large gears on The Bear Mechanics art work in West Lafayette’s Tapawingo Park were missing Wednesday evening. She says she was so upset she cried.

She says it is her first piece of public art.

Furbush says she will begin repairing the bear as soon as possible.

The goal of the project is to raise awareness of the importance of public art.
