Paint being removed from Castleman statue in Cherokee Triangle

LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- Crews are in Cherokee Triangle on Aug. 28 to remove the paint from the vandalized John B. Castleman statue.

The city has a contract with Falls Art Foundry to remove the paint.

The $8,200 contract includes the cost for paint removal and re-waxing the monument.

The statue was vandalized two weeks ago, just days after the violence in Charlottesville, Va. leading Mayor Greg Fischer to call for a review of all public art.

That review is now underway. Click here for more on the review.
