Jackson Hole Public Art presents a magical, immersive sculpture for all in our community to enjoy. Artist Thomas Dambo will travel to Jackson Hole this spring to construct a Giant Troll, set within the beloved Rendezvous Park and built entirely from recycled wood and locally-sourced materials.
Our Giant Troll (name to-be-determined…) will be about adventure and joy, inviting locals and visitors to investigate our mountainous, wild spaces, and their own imaginations as they explore the massive sculpture on the banks of the R Park’s pond.
We need your support today to begin construction in May 2021. Donate below or contact email@example.com for additional giving opportunities.
Thomas Dambo is a highly-acclaimed environmental artist, based out of Copenhagen, Denmark. He and his team are known for their giant sculptures, usually in a whimsical troll form placed out in nature, sourced with materials from the local recycling depot and inextricably linked to the local community. JH Public Art, with the support of the Jackson Hole Land Trust, looks to bring him here in May 2021 to build a Giant Troll for all of the Jackson Hole community.
The sculpture will be interactive, inviting climbing and exploration, and will stay on location for 3-5 years. Each of Dambo’s Trolls are also tied to an accompanying folklore, “The Great Story of the Little People”, building upon their inherent mystery and wonder. The modern tale connects over 55 trolls scattered throughout the world, uniting us as stewards of sustainability, nature lovers, art enthusiasts, and adventurers of all ages.
The goal is to create a piece of art that inspires people to go explore, have outdoor adventures, and consider their environmental impacts.
