And The Stampede moves on…

The Stampede exhibit is officially over, though some oxen will still graze in place until they find their way to new pastures, and a few will remain in their current locations on the grounds of their sponsors. It seems like just yesterday the excitement began with a herd of beautiful oxen spreading out through the Valley to welcome everyone home from their summer travels. Sadly, all wonderful things do come to an end.

The Stampede Finale was a great celebration of art in the everyday with live music and food trucks, recognition of award winning Stampede artists, and winners of the online auction filling the afternoon with fun and excitement. Winning bids are posted on the pages with the oxen that were part of the online auction.

Still want one? After a straggler joined the herd on Sunday, eleven special oxen have been selected for the Year of the Ox live auction and gala to be held at Grounds for Sculpture on January 24, 2015. Stay tuned to learn where this herd will reside until the Gala takes place.

From a local artist:
As an artist and a local resident, I'd like to thank the Council for this initiative and opportunity. Public art on a street level is a meaningful way to inspire the community and create wonder and excitement in the hearts of people, especially children. James J. Kelewae
