"The Thinker" Statue Stolen From Salisbury University

SALISBURY — Salisbury University police officials seek information about the recent campus theft of a bronze sculpture of The Thinker. It is the second known statue theft in recent years on the campus, following the 2010 disappearance of a sculpture of Henry David Thoreau.

The Thinker, a reproduction of the 1902 Auguste Rodin sculpture, was taken from the lawn of the Student Art Center on College Avenue the weekend of December 8. The sculpture is approximately 2 feet tall and weighs about 100 pounds, according to university police.

Anyone with information regarding the disappearance should call 410-543-6222.
