PORT ANGELES, Wash. —

An 8-foot tall mushroom sculpture that was toppled is one of about three-dozen sculptures damaged by vandals at a sculpture park in Port Angeles.

Fine Arts Center Director Robin Anderson discovered the damage Thursday when she arrived at work. Vandals overnight had upended, pulled down or broken about a third of the works in the adjoining 5-acre Webster's Woods park.

The Peninsula Daily News reports ( http://bit.ly/WBevek) some of the sculptures are so heavy more than one person must be responsible. Some works are damaged beyond repair and the loss could exceed $10,000.

Police are asking for tips to identify the vandals.
