Visitor Tips and News About Giant Metal and Hay Bale Sculptures
We visited the area and went looking all over for these sculptures. I'm pretty sure they'd be hard to miss. However, we were unable to locate them. We believe they are gone. There is construction going on in the area. Maybe they'll be moved or replaced later on.[Sarah, 11/20/2011]
Turns out these moved from Mission San Juan Capistrano in 2011 to San Antonio's Hardberger Park until sometime in 2012. These are High Art hay bales, not like the normal kind that stay in a farmer's field until they rot.
Giant Metal and Hay Bale Statues
Traveling from Mission Espada to Mission San Jose in San Antonio, we rounded the corner to see a field with giants metal statues. Each of the three 'giants' depict a working person and had hay to fill out the statue. It was quite a site to see in this open field with nothing more than a fenced off remains of a former mission. It was a great addition to our trip to see these pieces of art.[lylizm, 05/04/2010]
