College campus sleepwalker statue vandalized by Associated Press vs. Sleepwalker Burning down the house (automated music) (2014)

The tone definitely changed when it was announced that Sleepwalker and the hyper-realistic lost dog sculpture had been vandalized with yellow paint, in addition to other properties at Wellesley College. Shortly afterwards, Sleepwalker was removed for a good scrubbing at a nearby spa, or rather the artist’s studio. As of 25 June, he has reportedly not yet returned. Dear Matelli and Wellesley, please bring Sleepwalker back!
