Twenty-six entries from various artists were entered in the concrete statue contest. Artists had the task of painting a traditional barn. Past sculptures included an elephant, pig, cow, horse, retro camper, ice cream cone, Ferris wheel, state of Iowa, Iowa State Fair logo and blue ribbon. The concrete statues are in various locations throughout the Fair, August 11-21, 2022.
Individuals, clubs and companies can participate by completing the application with their proposed design. Chosen applicants then pick up a statue from the concrete manufacturer, paint it and return it to the Fair for display. Statues are judged on originality, creativity and overall look.
