At approximately 12:44am on March 24, 1970 University Circle Police responded to a loud explosion emanating from the vicinity of the Cleveland Museum of Art. Witnesses later reported hearing the explosion from over two miles away, certainly close enough to wake then museum director Sherman Lee at his home in Cleveland Heights. Upon arriving at the museum he found the museum’s iconic sculpture the Thinker had been blown off the pedestal on which it had sat for fifty-three years by a pipe bomb. In addition to considerable damage to the legs of the sculpture, shrapnel from the explosion scarred the marble columns and front door of the museum.
