Rocky On Parade
Presented by Western Illinois University, Rocky on Parade is a public art project displayed throughout Macomb that modeled after successful community art projects such as Chicago’s Cows on Parade, Georgia Southern’s Eagle Nation on Parade and Hawaii’s Geckos in Paradise. Using a design similar to WIU’s iconic Rocky sculpture located near Hanson Field, the bulldogs are cast in fiberglass. Each bulldog is mounted on a concrete base and selected artists have transformed the blank fiberglass surface of the sculpture into an original work of art.
