Farmington, Michigan: Big Raven Made of Tire Scraps

Maybe eight feet tall, with a wicked beak. The work of Nick Jakubiak. Officially named "Old Tired Crow," it sat in a warehouse for almost 10 years before Farmington purchased it to commemorate its annual Grand Raven Festival. Crows, ravens -- close enough.

Big Crow Made of Tire Scraps

It's not there.

[Steve Braun, 04/06/2022]

The big bird is current only on display during Farmington's Raven Festival in October.


Big Crow made of Tire Scraps

I saw the big tire crow, and then all of these crow statues in the town square. The city of Farmington decided to create a crow/raven festival during the month of October -- based on the art installation of the Big Crow.
