Bison-tennial Community Art Project

In partnership with Indiana Association of United Ways and the Indiana BicentennialCommission, United Way of Pike County participated in the Bison-tennial Public Art Project, that took place across Indiana in 2016 to celebrate Indiana’s 200th Statehood Day.  This project is a 5-foot-tall fiberglass bison that is painted bronze with a history timeline of Pike County drawn on it.  Our bison named Zebulon Pike “Zeb” was painted by our local high school art teacher, Jeremey Ross and some of his students. The base coat and sealant were done thanks to Don Richardson. Zeb made appearances throughout our county in local parades, festivals, events and businesses. A special thank you to some larger donors that financially helped with this project, Pike Arts Commision, Pike County Tractor Club and Timeless Classics of Pike County. The bison is permanently displayed outside at the Pike County History Center on Main Street in Petersburg, Indiana.
