A tail on the left and an entire bird to the right have been removed.

A Bungalower reader gave us the heads-up that one of the privately funded See Art Orlando (Website) sculptures, Take Flight, had been damaged somehow.
A tail and a bird have been removed from part of the sculpture that is close to the shore. We reached out to the SAO board for more information, but the cause of the incident was still unknown.

The artist, Douwe Blumberg, will be returning to Orlando sometime this summer to repair the sculpture.

See Art Orlando installations are covered under the City’s insurance policy for public art. The City is currently investigating the extent of the damage.

  1. Mentioning the location of the sculpture (Lake Eola) might be a basic point of info to include in the article.

  2. I noticed the missing tail last week on my morning walk. I felt sad and disappointed that someone out there is so miserable that they would project their anger/hatred onto something so beautiful. U0001f622

  3. Hoping someone is spotted on a surveillance camera doing this and they get prosecuted.

  4. Maybe they can raise the lights as well, they don’t shine on the birds when the lake is full
