Jack Made Of Red Fire Hydrants

In the center of Shelburne, VT, someone has constructed a 8 tall Jack out of old fire hydrants. A super bright red, this spectacle is hard to miss. Some even say it looks like a COVID 19 blob.

The fireplug sculpture at first resembled a giant-sized toy jack, but its hydrants have multiplied over the years. Now we're not sure what it looks like, but we still like it.

It looks like there is a big, black "ball" for the jack behind the fence it sits in front of. We drove by slowly, but didn't stop, so kind of hard to be 100% sure...

It looks like the sculpture has grown several more fire hydrants since its last photo. It sits in front of the home of a local art teacher.

[Rosio, 11/24/2014]

It appears to be an entirely new sculpture. Nice improvement!

It is on the left side of Rt 7 if you are heading south towards the museum. It's across the street from the Shelburne Vol. Fire Department.
