The Hopewell Valley Arts Council Stampede oxen are enjoying their final days of sweet fall air before they are reclaimed from their temporary community placements. We’ve written about this movement oxtensively and may have oxhausted all poxible puns.
The oxen have been amongst us for several months but will be retired from the public locations in preparation to be united with their “forever homes.”
To celebrate the close of its “oxceptional” public art oxen exhibit, the Hopewell Valley Arts Council will be hosting a community party on Sunday October 19 at 3PM at Hopewell Elementary School. The closing event will feature live bands and food trucks. Plus, a few exciting artistic revelations will be revealed including the winner of the “People’s Choice Award” and a “mysteriox” that no one has yet seen.
That event will also mark the end of the online auction for the oxen sculptures so make sure you have your final bid placed by 3PM on October 19th. The auction funds will go toward helping the Hopewell Valley Arts Council in its mission to bring quality workshops and classes to Hopewell Valley.
