The Red Elephant installs this weekend!

I hope you'll be able to join Sam Ostroff and myself this Saturday Oct. 1 at the Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, MA for the installation of The Red Elephant.

To whet your appetite, I thought I'd show some process pictures.

Working on the trunk.

She's big.

For scale, with the 3 ft long prototype

We've also made a small number of foot long elephants

Ready to be painted like the prototype.
With primer, ready to get reddy.
UPDATE!: The team with the painted piece at the shop. Matt, painter. Me. Sam, fabricator.

Here is a news report about the process of making the Red Elephant from the local news station:

And another report is here.

The festivities begin at 11:30 am.
