City Accepts Controversial Sculpture
The Portland City Council voted unanimously on March 20th to accept a controversial sculpture that was offered to the City by the owners of the Portland Sea Dogs. The City’s Public Art Committee had recommended that the City decline the gift because it did not reflect the city’s diversity, it contains the Seadogs’ team logo, and its donors did not follow the public process in presenting it.

The sculpture, which depicts a mother, father, and two children going to a Seadogs baseball game, will be officially accepted at a ceremony at Hadlock Field at 10AM and installed within the next few months.
