Reader report: Someone vandalized Portal 1 on Avenue C

A local East Villager passes along these photos of Portal 1, one of 13 portals by Nicolina and Brazilian artist Perola Bonfanti... passersby can scan the QR code on each one, then "you will begin the journey to uncover their mystery."

Unfortunately, someone ripped off the QR code on the Portal located on Avenue C and East Seventh Street. According to the reader, the artists are in South America but are working on a long-distance repair.

Here's the website for the portals.

Our problems started in Dallas, when the fire-breathing sheep destroyed the King Tut exhibit.

I saw that the other day. I don't know why I didn't think to take a picture of it. I'm slipping!

Yawn. No one uses QR codes. Also, this is street art that will never remain pristine. I like that someone put their mark on this piece. If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

It's like a portal into the portal. I think it's an improvement.
