Broken Marsh Statue at Highway 12, Walters Road to be Repaired

No official timeline set for project to be completed.

A damaged marsh sculpture, along Walters Road near the intersection of Highway 12 is getting closer to being repaired according to Suisun city officials and the artist who created it.

On Monday, April Conner, an administration assistant for Suisun City said it was only a matter of time before the statue would be returned to Phillip Glashoff, the artist who created it.

“It will be removed from the site and it will be repaired by Glashoff,” she said. “We had to receive money from the insurance company. The entire statue repair will be paid for the insurance.”

She added the city is not out money for the project because there was a responsible party and the insurance company paid the city. 

A vehicle hit the sculpture early this year and it has taken several months for the city to receive the insurance settlement. Now, it is only a matter of time before it will be taken back to Glashoff.

“Suisun City called me today, so I will be starting it shortly,” Glashoff said. “They told me they wouldn't reinstall it until the Walmart entrance was installed.”

Hope this gets at least removed soon. I've been asking about it for months. I'm concerned that if anyone does the same they are going to get impaled by the upside down tules. :-(

Mr. Glashoff, thank you for being the talented artist that you are and giving us such beautifully interesting sculptures at the entrance to my neighborhood and at the Lawler House Gallery. I am sorry to say but I hope that our city has you on speed dial because once that Super Center Walmart comes in, I strongly believe that the sculptures will get damaged again by vandals or by another rogue vehicle because that is the element that a Walmart brings.
