The Sculptures of Patrick Amiot

Last week, I took a trip over to Santa Rosa and decided to drive to Sebastopol. We spotted several whimsical sculptures on our way into town and wanted to find out more about these unique peices. We arrived at Florence Avenue, the main drag for these works of art, also home to artist Patrick Amiot who was responsible for all these fun sculptures adorning his and his neighbors houses. Here are just a few of the peices displayed.

All of Amiot's sculpture's are made from materials that are recycled from old cars, clocks, cans and pretty much anything he can get his hands on. For more about the artist visit here. The scupltures are not only displayed in front lawns but also at business around town. You can find a hand tour guide map of all the sculpture locations at the artist home on Florence Ave as presented by the Folk Art for Schools organization. It's worth a visit if ever you are in Sonoma County
