Someone has vandalized the Jimi Hendrix statue with green paint.
Louise Blake, an employee at Blick Art Materials on Broadway, which is located next to the statue, did not see the vandalism occur, but she said that at 5:23 p.m. the bright green acrylic paint was still wet.
It wasn’t immediately known who vandalized the statue.
It’s the second time since September that someone painted over Jimi.
On Sept. 19, blue paint was sprayed on the bronze statue of the rock legend during a vandalism spree.
Though graffiti removal is typically the responsibility of private-property owners, the city maintains the Hendrix statue created by Seattle-area artist Daryl Smith and dedicated in 1997.
