Reiman Gardens: Ribbit the Exhibit

Willy the Welcome Frog

Sometimes a short outing or a brief change of scenery is an appropriate response to what’s happening in life. Saturday afternoon I spent an hour or so at Reiman Gardens on the campus of Iowa State University. My primary goal was to see “Ribbit the Exhibit.”

Captivating and whimsical, this collection of human-scale frog sculptures is sure to make you smile. Artist J.A. Cobb crafted the pieces from copper and gave each one personality and interests that just might reflect your own.
