PORTLAND — The city needs help finding a prickly piece of public art missing from the Portland International Jetport.

City spokeswoman Jessica Grondin said the sculpted porcupine has been missing for  several weeks. The porcupine, which measures 25 inches by 30 inches by 30 inches, is part of the “Glimpse” collection of 10 animals sculpted by Wendy Klemperer.

The pieces were given to the city by William D. and Mary Louise Hamill, and installed on the Jetport Access Road in 2011. The sculpture is made of steel and nails, Grondin said.

Anyone with information about the missing sculpture is asked to contact city staffer Caitlin Cameron at 874-8901 or, or the Portland Police non-emergency number at 874-8300.

This sculpted porcupine is missing from the Portland International Jetport grounds.
