This project would install seven small brass sculptures depicting mice from artist Steve Worthington in outdoor locations within The Milk District and develop marketing and promotional materials for a scavenger hunt.
The purpose of the project is to add an activity for Milk District visitors, particularly families with children, draw new visitors, and honor a longstanding industrial use in the area.
Much public art tends to be monumental in scale, but these small sculptures help remind people of the joy of little things in life and provide an installation opportunity in a densely used area with little public right of way or private land for a large piece of art. The project contributes to ongoing placemaking efforts and work to improve the pedestrian experience.
The sculptures are casts of existing work, allowing for a short project timeline and low costs.
