UpDate 2/16/08: The Miami Herald reveals today that Harmonic Bridge was illegally removed and destroyed in 2004. The artist Christopher Janney sued under the Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990 and came to an agreement with the county's Art in Public Places Trust for a $900,000 commission to create a new installation. As of this date, $138,000 has been given to the artist for Harmonic Blues with nothing to show for it. The Herald plays up the "no-bid deal" and questions the Trust's "shoddy record keeping."
