Alaska State Troopers were notified Thursday of the theft of more than $3,000 worth of art prints from the Alaska Marine Highway System office in Ketchikan, the Ketchikan Daily News reported.
About 30 AMHS 25th anniversary prints signed by artist Bill C. Ray were allegedly stolen. An investigation by troopers, as noted in a Sunday dispatch, says the prints were taken sometime between July and October.
Ray, who was born in Juneau in 1951 and now lives in Berlin, Germany, according to his website, created the mural on Juneau’s municipal building, titled “Raven Discovering Mankind in a Clam Shell.”
Anyone with information that could be useful in recovering the prints is encouraged to contact state troopers.
