Seven-Foot-Tall Grasshopper made of Junk

A wonderful display of metal yard sculptures made by a local artist. The display includes a large standing metal grasshopper holding the artist's sign, and an eight-foot-tall ostrich riding a unicycle. New things are added to the display frequently, so you never know what else you'll see!
