This is another decorated Mastodon that was part of the 2005 Public Art Initiative where the “blanks” of the Mastodon, which is the mascot of local IPFW University where purchased by local businesses and artist and decorated or commissioned to be decorated. While there have been many public art additions added to downtown over the last few years, none are as cool as the Mastodon’s that both kids and adults can enjoy and appreciate.
This on is at Moe’s Southtwest Grill patio across from Dunkin Donuts on West Jefferson.
Sadly, many of the Mastodon’s have lost one or both tusks over the past 10+ years due to vandals like poor Mr. IPFW above. but it is still adorable.
