I notice the sculptures on Massachusetts Street downtown have been replaced. So I'm wondering what happened to the old sculptures?

According to Michael Tubbs, the city's staff liaison to the Lawrence Arts Commission, last year's pieces are in the process of being returned to their respective artists.
