Bunnymen in a Lake (Gone)

Field review by the editors.

Auburn, Alabama

Artist Alex Podesta has made a career of making full-color statues of his bearded self -- always in sets of two -- wearing white bunny costumes. In this set, "Self-Portrait as Bunnies (The Bathers)," the two men face each other half-submerged in a lake outside an art museum.

There's an old saying that art is what can't be expressed in words. Alex's artist statement for Bunnies seems to confirm this. "Who is this god dude?" he wrote. "And is he a hero? Like Superman? Or soldiers? Or knights on horseback? And what does hero mean anyway?"

Jule Collins Smith Museum

Jule Collins Smith Museum. I-85 exit 51. Turn north onto US-29/S. College St. Drive north on S. College St. for 2.5 miles. You'll see the museum and lake on the right. Turn right at the stoplight onto Woodfield Drive, then right again into the parking lot. Walk to the lake in front of the building.
2019: In storage, no longer in the lake.
