This squirrel is created from photographs taken in the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis. I got a grant to do a collection of art to cover utility boxes in the neighborhood. I used photos of everyday objects to create other everyday objects, like this squirrel who is made from manhole covers, colored pencils, lattes, bricks and light posts. His name is Pita.
