The Mudpuppy

Dan Chudzinski's avatar Dan Chudzinski

The "Mudpuppy" is a monumental, outdoor sculpture depicting a diver taking his pet bulldog for a walk on the ocean floor. The piece is constructed from steel, brass, fiberglass, canvas, and an assortment of modified found objects. I began constructing the bulldog, which is the size of a grizzly bear, this winter and I plan to complete the sculpture this summer. The final piece will include several special effects, including nighttime illumination and will inevitably invoke the imaginations of viewers, both young and old.
