Vandals Puncture "Blow-Home"
<snip>

RIDGEFIELD Vandals have punctured the vision of artist John Giglio.
His soft sculpture called "BlowHome," installed in front of the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum on Main Street, was an inflatable imitation of one of the town's historic houses.

But "BlowHome" lay in a crumpled heap after someone slashed the soft walls early Saturday.

It was the second attack on Aldrich art in two years. Artist Nina Levy's "Big Baby" sculpture was disfigured in front of the museum between Christmas and New Year's Eve 2003.

"The destruction of a public work of art may be seen as just another prank by bored teenagers but I would suggest that it is more than that," said Harry Philbrick, director of the Aldrich. "The sculpture by John Giglio is more than just a functional object. It represents something of this town. The vandalism destroyed a little bit of our community."

"BlowHome" was a replica of the Victorian home of Valerie Jensen. Giglio installed it two weeks ago as the first in a series of soft sculptures of Ridgefield homes to be displayed at the museum.

1. While I think the picture was kind of silly....
It's not right that someone do this. However, do people actually believe others will respect what they are trying to do? Seldom is that going to happen.
