Binky the Travel Rat Visits Artprize

Larry Binkowski's avatar Larry Binkowski

Binky the Travel Rat is a larger version of the travel rat that has accompanied my wife and I on some of our global adventures. We have found that he adds a bit of whimsy to our travel photos. Now with camera in hand, Binky points out some of the creative masterpieces found at Artprize. He also hopes that he will star in photos taken by the many attendees of this great event. Next to Binky is his suitcase covered with travel stickers of the places his smaller counterpart has visited. There is no deep philosophical underlying meaning in creating Binky. He’s just a big rat that I thought would be a fun addition to Artprize. Artprize attendees are encouraged to take photos with Binky and send them to his email. There are plans to post the pictures on his travel webpage. The accompanying photos show the clay model and Binky under construction.
