Someone's made off with nine life-size bronze sculptures of children playing from a Sandy art gallery, and the owner wants the public's help finding them.
The sculptures disappeared sometime between Saturday afternoon and Monday morning from the Hill Gallery & Sculpture Park at 9045 S. 1300 East. The outdoor gallery was locked at the time with a heavy-gauge chain around its wrought iron security gate, but gallery owner Dan Hill found out Monday morning that someone had cut through it.
Someone also cut the chains and padlocks used to secure the sculptures, and several had to have been pried off the sandstone boulders to which they were anchored, Hill said. He also suspects the thief had help moving the sculptures, weighing from 60 to 150 pounds, into a large truck or trailer.
