Art or vandalism? Picnic table pyramids at Washington parks
A stack of picnic tables found in a Spokane, Wash. park on Aug. 10, 2012.
SPOKANE, Wash. — Is it an act of vandalism or art? Regardless, city officials in Spokane, Wash. want the Table Stacking Bandit to cease operations.
Last Friday — for the fourth time in recent weeks — KREM reported that over 35 tables were found stacked up in a Spokane park on in the shape of a pyramid. The concoction looked something like a Christmas tree, as the pyramid was topped with some traffic lights.
A bucket truck and forklift had to be brought in to dissemble the pyramid.
“As cool as it is, it’s upsetting,” a park official said. “It takes money away from the city, and we’re already on a budget. It takes time away from people trying to do their jobs.”
