… in Lee Park with the word “Drama,” you managed to mar two arts at once. In addition to that obscurely defiant declaration (upset theater student? sarcastic art critic?), the perpetrator also made a knee-slapper out of the granite sign that marks the statue and its pedestal, turning “Robert E. Lee Park” into “Robert E. Lee Park in Rear.”
Actually, my first line should refer to marring three arts at once: theater, sculpture and graffiti. I may be wrong about contemporary graffiti artists, but whatever one might think of Robert E. Lee, the Confederacy, A. Phimister Proctor, the sculptor, or even Dallas architect Mark Lemmon (who designed the base), I suspect this kind of attack is not exactly what Banksy or Saberone or Dondi White had in mind.
