The Broken "Rings of Steel" at Foley Square
Two men with a sawzall, and avan.... were able to saw the banisters off of a solid granite staircase divider at the monument Triumph of the Human Spirit by Lorenzo Pace is the world’s largest site-specific installation venerating the experience of African American enslavement.
The stainless steel banister supports are 1" thick and the banisters themselves are 2" thick and weigh, well, alot! The thieves / vandals removed two sets of banisters which presumably required a van to remove from them from the scene.
Why would anyone do this?
this is why.
