When everything's closed on New Year's Day...

...what do you do? Go to the park and see the crazy, crazy artwork Abilene has to offer.

The statue from the book Santa Calls by William Joyce...the BEST statue in town!


Oh, if you could only see this up close.

You can not begin to know. There is so much unspeakable about this sculpture (you can't even see the pigs sprouting, fully-formed, from the earth behind the two-faced creature with the empty back!) and yet, it's WONDERFUL. (It's like The Kramer--loathsome and offensive, and yet you can't look away!)

Happy New Year, everybody! Try not to be jealous of Abilene's SWEET artwork...

I can only assume that those statues are "downtown." I vaguely remember one that looks like a huge skull of a bull, but where in the world are those funky ones? They're great!
