Art vandals will not prevail

The contest in public space really played itself out this week with several works being covered by other rubbish. This one fell victim within the first hour with a strategically placed ironing board obscuring the text, a condition that is easily rectified. However, when Feedme did the rounds a few days later, another form of complaint was registered by a disgruntled member of the public - vandalism. At first it looked like an attempt had been made to play around with the letters but on closer observation, their dismembered parts were scattered on the grass. Never mind - with plenty of replacements at the ready, Feedme quickly reinstated the quote to amuse, challenge or aggravate the residents of Charnwood Grove - hopefully for a few more days.
