TEMPE, Ariz. – “Mighty Manimal March.” by azhttp

TEMPE, Ariz. – “Mighty Manimal March,” the second of a two-part temporary,

shared-terrain public art exhibition was installed on Friday October 12

Friday on the ASU Gammage lawn, at the northeast corner of Mill Avenue and

Apache Boulevard.

Seattle artist Nicole Kistler, formerly of Tempe, will install a more than

160 commercially produced plastic, latex and fiberglass animal lawn

ornaments, such as deer, flamingoes and coyotes on the Gammage lawn. The

menagerie features 64 flamingoes, 30 penguins, five pelicans, seven iguanas

and lizards, two pythons, 10 chicks, a baby elephant named “Bessie,” 11 wild

boar, 20 rabbits, four squirrels, six reindeer and three bears. She intends

to arrange this “river” of animals so that they appear to be on a protest

march or leaving class together and chatting about the course material.

The installation will be on display through December (date pending).

Shared Terrain exhibitions are intended to explore the blurred territory and

shared history where the university meets the city. Pedestrians and

passengers of the thousands of vehicles that pass through this area can

receive a new perspective on the familiar territory and expand their

awareness of site-responsive artwork.

This exhibition furthers the arts district concept of Mill Avenue, which

begins at Gammage Auditorium and includes the Music Building, ASU Art Museum

and the Ceramics Research Center and several School of Art galleries.
