The Wichita Police Department is investigating vandalism to the “Heritage Woman” sculpture located in Heritage Park, near the intersection of Main and William behind the Wichita Sedgwick-County Historical Museum. Damage to the five-and-a-half-foot bronze sculpture was discovered today by a local citizen and reported to the City of Wichita. The sculpture was found laying on the ground off its base and broken in half. It is not known at this time when the vandalism occurred or the cost of repairs.

“Heritage Woman” was sculpted by Salina artist Dr. Richard Bergen and donated to the City in 1976 by the Junior League of Wichita.
