Seen this sculpture? There's a $1,000 reward if you have

Author:

A reward of $1,000 is being offered by Edina to find thieves who stole pieces of three sculptures in a city park.

Edina police are offering the reward from its Crime Prevention Fund after efforts to recover the pieces of art have so far drawn a blank.

The clay sculpture, entitled "Three Trees," was donated to the city by local artist Kevin Komadina and installed at Fred Richards Park.

It was split into nine pieces and moved into storage to allow for the construction of the "Edina Promenade," only for thieves to break into the unit and steal five of these pieces some time between Oct. 26 and Nov. 19, an email press release says.

The city says says it may be related to another sculpture theft on Nov. 23, when a bronze artwork was stolen from Heritage of Edina on Heritage Drive.

According to the city's website, Three Trees was selected for a place in the park in 2011 by its Public Art Committee, with Komadina donating it for permanent display.

The work is a comment "about how Man and nature are intimately connected and interdependent."

Anyone with information about the theft, call 952-826-1600 or email police@edinamn.org.
