“Diego” got a fresh new clear coat and is currently hanging in the main lobby of Hard Rock Hotel San Diego in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego before choosing his permanent location to call home. The statue was painted for the “Rabbitville” Project which is part of the @gaslampquarter Association 150th anniversary celebration installation of fifteen, four foot, fiberglass rabbit statues to be permanently installed through the Gaslamp Quarter of @sandiego . 150 years ago, the area that is now the Gaslamp Quarter was jokingly nicknamed “Rabbitville”.
The “Rabbitville” installation will honor the pioneering spirit of legendary founder, Alonzo Horton, who transformed Rabbitville into modern @sandiego . Honored to be one of the artists commissioned to paint this unique canvas for our city and all of its visitors. Thanks to the Sparks Gallery TEAM, Erin Liddell, and the Gaslamp Quarter Association ®.
