40 Garfield statues to decorate Pacific Highway 101

In a fund-raising project to benefit the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe, 40 five-foot five-inch statues of Garfield will be placed along highway 101 in California. Each Garfield statue will be decorated by different artist. Each town that opts in to participate in the program must purchase the statue and pay $1000 to the artist to decorate it and then place the statue somewhere in their town.

This project is not unique. I’ve posted news on this blog about Joe Heller’s work on painting on a butterfly statue for the Einstein Project that occurred earlier this year.

Those in the Encinitas area can go this Wednesday night at 7-9 pm to watch the artists paint the Garfield statues.
