Squirrels - Community Art Project

There are two big squirrels in downtown Tiffin. They are part of a 2005 outdoor art display named, "Parade of Squirrels - We're Just Nuts About Tiffin." I asked around if any more squirrels were available to be seen, but no one seemed to know. These two are in front of Elmwood Assisted Living.

Squirrel Statues

These statues aren't around town anymore. There are a few in random locations. Most of them were auctioned off to private owners. You can randomly see them on people's porches.

Squirrel Statues - Community Art

We asked where the squirrel statues might still lurk, but didn't get much in response. The Visitors Bureau pointed us to three: two outside The Shawhan on Washington St, near Perry; another in the bureau's storefront a block south.

We did stumble on a fourth squirrel at our hotel, the Quality Inn. It's hidden in a party room.

Big Squirrels - Community Art Project

Grizzly-sized artists' renditions of squirrels in an un-native habitat, namely human business, politics, art, and sport. This one is titled "Taking Care of Business."

[Ed Jones, 02/03/2006]

Another Community Art Project, "Squirrels on Parade" was a temporary installation of 37 fiberglass statues decorated by artists. Some of the statues have survived as more permanent landmarks around town.
