Feather Statue Stolen

8 ft Statue at the Art Gallery of Guelph Stolen

The Art Gallery of Guelph’s outdoor Sculpture Park has experienced the disappearance of a prominent statue representing a feather.

The University of Guelph confirmed that the eight-foot tall bronze sculpture, which depicts a crow’s feather, has gone missing from its designated place.

“Feather has been an important landmark in the sculpture park and the wider city for almost three decades,” stated Shauna McCabe, the Art Gallery of Guelph’s executive director, in an official announcement.

She added, “To have a work by a renowned Canadian artist forcibly removed and taken is extremely disheartening for the gallery as well as our partners – the university, city, and Upper Grand District School Board. An artwork like this becomes not only part of the national cultural landscape but part of the everyday lives of community members.”

The iconic piece, crafted in 1997 by celebrated Canadian artist John Greer, was specially designed for the Art Gallery of Guelph. The specifics regarding when the theft took place remain unclear.
