Deer on a Bridge

A new downtown public art display features three deer in human poses. One deer is standing on the W. Rich Street bridge over the Scioto River. It is standing on its hind legs and appears to be taking in the view. The other two are on the east side of the COSI Museum in Genoa Park on Washington Blvd. One is sitting on the steps leading to the river and the other is lounging on the grass. All three were designed by Terry Allen of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
