National Cathedral In Washington DC Latest Victim Of Green Paint Attack
The latest victim of green paint vandalism is an organ inside the Bethlehem Chapel at the National Cathedral and on a statue outside of the Smithsonian Castle in Washington, D.C.
Built in 1855, the Smithsonian Castle is the first building to be a part of the Smithsonian Institution. The statue that was vandalized is that of Joseph Henry, the first secretary of the Smithsonian.
A similar incident at the Lincoln Memorial forced its closure while cleaning crews scrubbed and made repairs last week.
CNN’s Dan Merica tweeted this photo at the Cathedral less than an hour ago:
