The Power of the Rubber Duck



In response to Meghan and Caroline’s inspired and touching rubber duck installation, we decided to look around the world and find where else the rubber duck has been used in the art community.  We found an interesting one: Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, has been creating large rubber ducks, “to spread joy around the world”, for 8 years.  These floating sculptures have appeared in Hong Kong (above), Amsterdam, Osaka, Sydney, and Pittsburgh among other places.  Last year, one of his ducks made an appearance in Los Angeles among the Tall Ships.  You can see more of Mr. Hofman’s ducks, crows, bunnies, and other sculptures at: Florentijn Hofman.
