A metal butterfly sculpture was stolen from the newly restored Gibbs Park on Saturday night, said Leslie Gilson, park restoration coordinator for the Huntington Beach Tree Society. "We think someone used a metal-cutting tool, cut it and took it that way," she said. "I'm hoping it's just kids [that took it] and hope it will show up, but what I think is happening is that people are stealing things for the metal. " The 5-foot-wide butterfly sculpture was created in 2005 as part of KOCE's butterfly initiative to promote creativity, Gilson said.

Growing up, Christian Tedeschi fancied getting into trouble. He didn't harm himself or others, but flaunted a short attention span and flagrant disregard for authority. And then he welcomed the punishment, be it a time-out at home or day-long suspension at school. Closed into his bedroom, away from prying eyes, he drew for hours on end. One day, he swapped the permitted pen and paper for a block of clay - and then just couldn't stop designing. In retrospect, he said, that moment altered the course of his life.

It's a beautiful day at the beach, so you decide to go for a little stroll along the boardwalk and enjoy the sights and sounds. You marvel at the water's shade of blue and how it sparkles in the sun. You watch as children run up and down the beach and frolic in the ocean. You listen to the waves crash on the shore and study the surfers, admiring how effortless their ride along the waves looks. Then something strange catches your ear. It sounds a little fuzzy, kind of like a recording -- a recording of bell buoys and foghorns.

No one knows what kind of sculpture Jennifer Reifsneider will create Monday through Thursday in the Coastline Art Gallery. For that matter, Reifsneider doesn’t know either. The Long Beach artist, who is the first artist-in-residence for Coastline Community College, plans to show up at the gallery, 10156 Adams Ave., Monday morning with 30 to 40 balls of twine, a few sewing machines and a mood to experiment. Reifsneider has asked Coastline students and members of the public to stop by the gallery, offer ideas and even join in the making of the sculpture — or sculptures, if that’s the way it pans out. “I don’t know what they’re going to come up with, and I’m letting that be part of the process,” said Reifsneider, a candidate for a master’s in fine arts at Cal State Long Beach.

Sitting on his bed, bending thin pieces of metal with a pair of German-made pliers as he listens to classical music, Vincent Yancoskie creates a sculpture — out of wire. Yancoskie says he can make whatever you want and usually does, since almost all of his orders are custom. “They’ll say, ‘Can you make a piano?’ and then I’ll say, ‘OK, what kind of piano? Do you want any kind of details on it? Do you want any specific features on it?

Eron Ben-Yehuda HUNTINGTON BEACH -- Concerned that a sculpture planned as a centerpiece for a $6-million south beach make-over may be too controversial, the city has decided to delay its construction so residents can offer their opinions on its value. Reminiscent of England's Stonehenge, the artwork is a collection of 18-foot stones shaped like surfboards set in a circle of sand. Referred to by some as "Surfhenge," the sculpture would stand at the corner of Beach Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway -- the "gateway" to the coast for many visitors, said Ron Hagan, the city's director of community services.

Eron Ben-Yehuda HUNTINGTON BEACH -- An environmental group may petition a state agency to block construction of a sculpture of whale bones the city plans to build on the beach. Many residents are also aghast at the art piece. Approved by the City Council on May 1, the sculpture will feature a cluster of seven fossil-like concrete bones at the corner of Beach Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway. The creamy white bones will stick out of the sand at a height of 12 to 16 feet.

THE ISSUE: City officials have delayed construction of artwork -- said to resemble England's Stonehenge -- to get more public input. PRO I'm in favor of the "Surfhenge" sculpture at South Beach. I'd love to see more public art in and around Huntington Beach. I enjoyed visiting Chicago, and they had so much public art. It was wonderful. So I'd love to see more of that. CON I wonder why they spend this kind of money. Not that I have anything against art, but when the infrastructure of the city is falling apart, why would they want to go and spend money on art?

Mike Sciacca Four Boy Scouts diligently carved three large, hollowed-out mounds of sand during the first hour of the Huntington Beach Sandcastle Festival contest Saturday at the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier. Corino Spitaleri, Frank Harmeier, Keaton Celinder and Reed McCord, under the direction of Frank's mother, Gail, worked together like a well-oiled machine, using buckets, shovels and manpower to combine sand and water to form the base for their project: a Halloween-themed sculpture that was to include three pumpkins, a ghost and sign that read, "Boo."

Torus Tammer The old West has always been alive to sculptor Tom Gillenwater. The Huntington Beach resident recalls going to the movies with a childhood friend to watch a western and then returning home and mimicking the action he had just seen. "Like a lot of kids, we played cowboys and Indians," Gillenwater said. "When we'd come back, I'd be so and so that we saw in the movie, and he'd be the other guy, so cowboy art has always been an integral part of my life."
