In this Tuesday, July 10, 2012 photo, "Chain Reaction," a sculpture by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Paul Conrad, is seen in Santa Monica, Calif. After years of erosion by the ocean's salt air, "Chain Reaction" is not in danger of exploding but of falling down. With repairs estimated to cost $300,000, city officials say the work by the late Conrad is a work of art that Santa Monica can no longer afford. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong) less
