ABOUT THE WORK
The thirty five foot tall Bunny Foo Foo is anything but little, and is visible from highway 29 as it leaps up from our HALL St. Helena vineyard. We are thrilled to share Lawrence Argent's sculpture and we invite you to visit us at HALL St. Helena and discover all of the amazing new works of art on site.
After seeing the incredible works of famed artist Lawrence Argent, including his Leap rabbit installation at the Sacramento Airport and his I See What You Mean piece at the Denver Convention Center, the Halls were inspired to reach out to Argent and share their story with him.
When Kathryn's children were little they would all spend at least one weekend per month at their family vineyard in Mendocino. One of their daily routines was to walk through the vineyard singing the children's poem “Little Bunny Foo Foo hopping through the vineyard scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head.” Note that they changed the word forest to vineyard because it was their song.
Kathryn explains; "I am very excited that we now have a new, not so little Bunny Foo Foo hopping through our vineyard here in St. Helena. Life feels like it has come full circle."
