Yard Art of Richard Hansen

Yard Art of Richard Hanson

Couldn't get too close to the statues from the road, but they looked pretty nice from what we could see. We were in a hurry so we didn't have a chance to seek out the owner for permission to see the sculptures up close. It would definitely be worth a stop if one could get up close.

[Geoffrie Kramer, 07/07/2012]

Richard Hanson created a variety of cement statues in his yard, from Snoopy and Bugs Bunny, to dancing bears, to groupings of Indian and pioneer figures. He made the first one in 1956.
