Cary, NC – Ghostbuster, the ribbon-y sculpture of a horse’s head at the corner of Davis and High House, has been the victim of a graffiti attack.
Everybody’s Favorite Horse
The sculpture, by artist Michael Stutz, was placed on the site in the autumn of 2009.
Ghostbuster is named for a real horse that lived on the Sears Farm, said to be a favorite of children due to its gentle nature.
Who is ML?
The graffiti includes the letters ML.
I remember back in sixth grade, Jimmy Andolino wrote my name on the wall of Brookdale Elementary School in Bloomfield, New Jersey. A big crowd gathered after school and Jimmy and I started fighting. The school principal, Mr. DeCamera, came out and punished us both. I remember really fuming at the unfairness of it all.
So maybe ML is not the vandal, but the victim. In any event, it’s likely ML knows something about this.
It’s a Crime
Juvenile prank? Defacing public or private property is a crime.
