It's a tough time for public sculpture in Worcester, Massachusetts, USA.

In July, vandals in the city 50 miles west of Boston decapitated a sculpture of a woman by artist Lisa Simonds. That followed a June 13 attack on no fewer than five other works on June 13—the night before the exhibition in Worcester's Elm Park was scheduled to open, according to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.
