Vail Police are seeking the public’s assistance in solving the theft of a life-size bronze sculpture of a golden retriever.

During the night of Monday, June 3, the centerpiece of artist Marianne Caroselli’s bronze fountain “Wash Day” was stolen from in front of the Cogswell Gallery, 223 Gore Creek Dr. in Vail Village.

The entire sculpture is valued at $24,000. There was no damage to the remainder of the sculpture.

The bronze dog is approximately 24 inches in height and weighs approximately 150 pounds. The attached is a photo detail of the bronze golden retriever in the wash tub (left in picture) and after the theft (right).
