Local artist Megan Stumpfig—whose large mural spans the walls at Riff Cold Brew Coffee’s newly-opened shop in the Box Factory—had some of her art taken from the front of the Domino Room on Greenwood Avenue on the morning of Dec. 29.

Beat Lab Radio is offering a cash reward for the safe return of the art, according to Ashlee Gruver of The Vth LMNT.

“Any information is invaluable to us,” Gruver wrote in an email to the Source. “We do not wish to press charges, we just want the pieces returned to their rightful owner.”



Gruver said people with information about the missing art can remain anonymous by using SendAnonymousMail.net to Contact@BeatLabRadio.com or calling 503-545-1569.

UPDATE: One piece "Coyote" (woman with head dress) was picked up Jan. 6, after Gruver said she received a call from a local resident. The art was found behind Grocery Outlet and the Teen Challenge Thrift Store on Third Street.
