Our friend Curt Hoppe let us know about an apparent theft last night at the Woodward Gallery on Eldridge Street between Broome and Delancey...
Per the gallery's Facebook page:
ATTENTION Stolen Artwork!! REWARD being offered for information leading to the return of artwork from our Project Space last night. (MOODY "Absolute Addict", acrylic on wood panel, 68 x 44 inches)
We spoke with someone from Woodward ... turns out the piece was part of an Outdoor Project Space. Someone removed the artwork with a drill. Per the Woodward folks: "We have the area monitored with camera surveillance. We have filed a report with the NYPD, provided video evidence of the theft and now have detectives on the case. Someone was very silly in thinking they would not be caught."
