“Conejo Cottontails” is the superb and first city-wide Conejo Public Art project of its kind. Featuring 5’6” fiberglass sculptures designed by Cate Hartenstein, painted and mosaic-tiled by local artists, all 20 of these delightful masterpieces have been purchased and placed by local businesses, organizations, and individuals.
The Conejo Cottontails is a joint venture of Art Trek, Inc. and the Arts Council of the Conejo Valley. Funds from these whimsical sculptures provided honorariums for the artists, and currently support art experiences for high risk and poorly funded youth and senior programs throughout the community.
As you drive, walk, or bike through Thousand Oaks you will inevitably pass several Conejo Cottontails! See our map of locations. You can have fun with your friends and family by tracking them down, photographing yourselves, and sending the photos and a little description to us for our website Arts Council at firstname.lastname@example.org. With your permission we’ll be using some of these photos for promotion, encouraging others to do the same. Public Art is free! Enjoy!
Scroll through the different designs and double click to find their locations. Learn more about the artists on YouTube.
