Shawnee, OK - Art Horses

For the past few years, as we stopped in Shawnee, Oklahoma I noticed the beautiful painted horses at various places. This time as we stopped to grab a burger I took photos of this awesome horse. I love the idea and it is much like the painted buffalos all across our state. The Horse project was sponsored by businesses and individuals of Shawnee.
Horse In The City is an exciting way to take art out of the museums and onto the streets for people of all ages to enjoy. This city art project has helped to build civic pride, and benefit local charities. Life-size fiberglass horses continue to make an impression that is hard to miss around Shawnee as some of the area’s most talented artists “bring to life” these graceful creatures.
