PORT ANGELES — An 8-foot tall mushroom sculpture that was toppled is one of about three-dozen sculptures damaged by vandals at a sculpture park in Port Angeles.

Fine Arts Center Director Robin Anderson discovered the damage Thursday when she arrived at work. Vandals overnight had upended, pulled down or broken about a third of the works in the adjoining 5-acre Webster’s Woods park.

The Peninsula Daily News reported that some of the sculptures are so heavy more than one person must be responsible. Some works are damaged beyond repair and the loss could exceed $10,000.

Police are asking for tips to identify the vandals.
