The Destination Downtown Coalition wants to bring Babe the Blue Ox to downtown Brainerd but needs your financial help to raise the $2400 needed. Nor-Son Construction has donated a Babe the Blue Ox statue that they’ve had at their Baxter office since 2008. Babe is in need of repairs and a new look. We want this to be a community project that adds to downtown Brainerd’s uniqueness. The Crossing Arts Alliance has agreed to head the artistic side with a call out to local artists. They will be putting together a panel to determine placement, find great artists, and judge who will be doing the honors of creating downtown’s latest attraction! If you would like to provide financial support for this project please make a donation by clicking on the link. Sponsors of $500 or more will have their name on a plaque next to the statue.
