This weekend families visiting Western Sculpture Park in St. Paul got to enjoy wildlife of a different sort. Artist Mary Johnson created a 14′ rabbit out of rebar, lath and cement. Working with children from the neighborhood, Johnson created mosaic medallions from found objects that were embedded into the rabbits “hide.” She used the hub caps from a ’58 Ford for the bunny’s eyes. His name? Max Rabbitat.

The dedication of the new addition to the sculpture park featured carrot cupcakes and a bunny hop.
