Purdue officials seek to repair damaged sculpture

WEST LAFAYETTE – An eight-foot-tall bronze horse sculpture at Purdue University has been taken down after police said it was hit by a drunken driver.

Purdue Galleries director Craig Martin told WLFI-TV it at first looked as though the sculpture had just been knocked over, but some pieces of it were broken off from last week’s crash.

West Lafayette police said a 22-year-old man faces drunken driving charges from the crash into the sculpture outside Yue-Kong Pao Hall. The Journal & Courier reported the driver needed surgery for a back injury.

Martin said university officials don’t know how much repairs to the sculpture might cost. The 1,700-pound work by sculptor Deborah Butterfield cost about $330,000 when it was commissioned and installed in 2009.
