The My Ballard team is sad to report that, yet again, vandals have tagged the Bergen Place mural with graffiti. Victoria from Friends of Bergen Place contacted us this morning to let us know the unfortunate news.
It is believed that the vandalism took place late on Wednesday night on in the early hours of Thursday morning.
“It took a minimum of three years to raise the $100,000 for that mural. This person or people have damaged it and caused a lot of work for volunteers in a few brief moments. An utter testament to the lack of respect they have for art and someone else’s property,” says Victoria.
If anyone has any information relating to the vandalism contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Friends of Bergen Place online.
“We intend to prosecute if we can find the person. Seattle Parks has been notified and the Seattle Police as well,” says Victoria.
