Dairy Cats – by Day Christensen
The “Dairy Cats” were developed with the Steenblik Dairy, a longtime presence in the Rose Park neighborhood, in mind. The cats are sited so children and adults can enjoy them as they visit or walk through Steenblik Park. The four cats are cast in bronze with variations in patina, resulting in a diversity of colors combined with the classic richness of the bronze.
