Interactive Sculpture of Arkansas State Bird Installed on Amazeum Campus


BENTONVILLE, Ark. (December 11, 2018) — The Scott Family Amazeum unveils the first-of-its-kind interactive sculpture in Northwest Arkansas on Saturday, December 15 at 10:00 on the Amazeum grounds. The public is welcome to attend this free event.

The Incredible Electric Technicolor Mockingbird created by Denver, Colorado, Maker Amanda Willshire is the first permanent work on public display to come out of the Amazeum Maker in Residence Program. The 12-foot long, 14-foot tall, 5-foot wide sculpture of the Arkansas state bird made from steel and upcycled aluminum aircraft parts features interactive “mock-back” technology. This technology, with support from Fayetteville maker, Eugene Sargent, enables people to provide verbal input into the sculpture that returns as a digitally enhanced audible feedback.
