As part of LexArts fiftieth anniversary celebration, Horse Mania has returned for a third installment. Fiberglass horses measuring six by eight feet have been decorated by students and professionals around the commonwealth since late January. Each horse weighs between 115 and 140 lbs. Artists submitted designs for painting and embellishing the horses for this major public art project.
The original renderings used to select the artists who created this year's Horse Mania horses will be on exhibit in the Central Library rotunda from May 20 (Gallery Hop) through July 10th. The exhibit will consist of 72 11x17 renderings plus the renderings used for Horse Play (the school version of Horse Mania).
