John Ilg’s conceptual piece had been displayed twice before and had survived the 2008 Minnesota State Fair. Unfortunately for Ilg, the weeks that it was up at Normandale Community College proved too much temptation for somebody. The sculpture was reported missing – a trail of footprints leading to the parking lot and seven rolled up bills hinted at what had transpired. The other 309 bills were nowhere to be seen.
Ilg remained upbeat:
All you can do is laugh.
He also suggested that he might redo the piece. [UPI]
