Sculpture Tour Eau Claire art stolen, recovered

Farm Fireball one of more than 30 pieces of art making up the 2016 Sculpture Tour Eau Claire that was reported stolen has been recovered.

The steel piece, by artist Eva Asplin of Fargo, N.D., was recovered early Tuesday in a downtown parking lot by Eau Claire police, according to Julie Pagallo, executive director of Sculpture Tour Eau Claire. Eau Claire police said the sculpture was found at 12:30 a.m. by a security guard in front of Building 12 at Banbury Place, 800 Wisconsin St. Paggallo reported there was no further damage to the scuplture when recovered.

The piece was the fifth sculpture to be stolen since the Sculpture Tour began in 2011. Pangallo reported the theft to Eau Claire police at 10:18 a.m. Friday, according to the department s dispatch log. The sculpture had been on display at the corner of East Grand Avenue and South Barstow Street but had been taken down after it had been damaged, said Pangallo, noting it was the seventh piece to be damaged in the 2016-17 season.

Pangallo and Asplin discovered the theft Friday when they went to pick Farm Fireball up from where it was being stored so the artist, who was in town to deliver a commissioned piece, could repair it. Sculpture Tour Eau Claire is working with the Eau Claire Police Department on ideas to better protect sculptures, said police spokesman Kyle Roder. One of the suggestions included Sculpture Tour Eau Claire partnering with businesses along the tour route to put up cameras dedicated to the pieces of art.

Vandalism and theft are huge issues, and they make artists think twice about being part of the tour, Pangallo said. These are one-of-a-kind pieces and need to be protected. The artwork making up the 2016 tour range in price from $1,850 to $66,000, according to the Sculpture Tour Eau Claire website.

The sculptures that are part of the current tour are scheduled to come down in mid-April, Pangallo said, and the three dozen pieces making up the 2017 Sculpture Tour are set to be put up May 10.

We are really excited about the new season, Pangallo said. We have a lot of fun pieces coming.

Since 2011, several sculptures have been damaged, and five, including Farm Fireball, have been stolen. The four others were taken between August 2012 and July 2014. They were:

All in the Same Boat, a mixed-media sculpture featuring various types of civilian, government and religious buildings on a listing, off-balance oil tanker, was taken from its mounting outside Mayo Clinic Health System s downtown campus in July 2014 and was found a day later in a backyard near where it was taken.

Rock-N-Roll, a bronze sculpture of a monkey on a skateboard, was reported missing in June 2014 from its base outside Mogie s Pub & Restaurant, 436 Water St. It turned up later that evening in the alley behind the business and was put back on display.

Mother and Child was stolen in May 2013 from a granite welded pedestal in front of Stella Blues, 306 E. Madison St. It was recovered on Dec. 10, 2015, by a county employee, who found it in a wooded area in the eastern part of Eau Claire County.

Rain Coat Kids, a statue of two children splashing in puddles, was broken free from its base in front of Acoustic Cafe, at the intersection of Gray and South Barstow streets, in August 2012 and put into the trunk of a car. Police recovered it within 15 minutes of a call from a witness.
