Rubber Ducky we are oh so fond of you!!!!
Ernie would LOVE this four story high rubber ducky that landed in Pittsburgh last week.
It’s created by a Dutch artist and this wacky ducky sculpture has been in Amsterdam and Hong Kong, just to mention a few stops along it’s journey.
It’s huge, it’s yellow, it’s VERY simple, yet it brings so much joy to the kids and adults who saw it floating near the Pittsburgh Fountain at the point.
But I couldn’t help but wonder why this simple rubber ducky is causing so much fuss, and drawing such large crowds. What if it was a giant deer in a park instead? Is it the size of the duck or the fact that it is a duck and not a deer? Maybe I am over thinking it – or maybe the fact that I am thinking about it makes it a piece of art.
Anyway, my twins loved it, and Sesame Street’s Ernie would have gone gaga over it! So I will call it a successful day out in the lovely city of Pittsburgh!
