One of downtown’s signature sculptures went missing today. It seems that the triceratops guarding the riverfront at the foot of Eighth Street was whisked away by crews and taken back to their workshop for repairs. Has the Grinch stolen Louisville’s dinosaur on Christmas-eve-eve? It’s unclear when or where the creature will return, as the old electrical tower on the Museum Plaza site adjacent to the dinosaur’s stomping grounds will soon be dismantled. We always enjoyed the contrast between the plastic dinosaur and the massive steel one looming overhead (see photo above).
