Description

Mandy Greer created three works for the Faye G. Allen Children's Center based on themes found in the folklore section of the Central Library.

Once you enter the Children's Center, turn right and you will see The Magic Grove up on the wall to the right of the bathrooms. Walk past the bathrooms to see Babe. Go back a few paces to the play area. Phoenix Fairy is at the far end of the play area.

Babe is a large portrait bust of a royal blue ox whose horns are bejeweled with a random pattern of beads, buttons, sequins, and embroidery on a felted wool background. According to Greer, Babe refers to discovery through investigation of one's surroundings.

Location
