Questions and Ampersands


Update: The Seattle Art Museum contacted me and let me know that the sculpture's inner pole had rusted and needed to be repaired and repainted. They're hoping to reinstall it soon. Mystery solved.

One of the things I'll miss most about Seattle is the Olympic Sculpture Park. I live just a half a block away and it is my go-to location for afternoon walks. My favorite sculpture is a piece by Roy McMakin called Love and Loss, which features a big lit-up, rotating ampersand.

At some point in the last month, I noticed the ampersand was missing, which begs the question what happened to it? Was it in need of repairs? Was it stolen by an evil conjunction collector? We may never know.
