Thanks to actress Melissa Joan Hart for Instagramming one of our sculptures today – “Rabbit Reach” by Tim Cherry.
She is in town filming and posted this picture on Instagram. “Rabbit Reach” was a gift from Whitlow Wyatt and the Carey Cox Wyatt Charitable Foundation. It was given in memory of George Wyatt and Frank Kumpuris, who were the fathers of Whitlow Wyatt and Dean & Drew Kumpuris. Cherry’s bronze sculpture is located at the corner of President Clinton Avenue and Sherman Street, across from the Museum of Discovery.
Cherry’s bronze sculpture was selected for this spot because of its proximity to children at the Museum in the River Market district. The design and size of the sculpture encourages children (and adults) to climb on it and to play around the rabbit.
Melissa, thanks for the shout out! Enjoy Little Rock and send us a selfie with one of the sculptures!
