We envision an outdoor, family-oriented public art project with 5’6″ fiberglass cottontail rabbits, painted by local artists and purchased by local businesses, organizations and individuals. A kick-off celebration for all ages will spark interest within our community. Maps showing the cottontails’ locations will include sponsors’ and purchasers’ names, recognizing the goodwill of donors and investors.
In the 1800s, a Spanish governor granted 48,000 acres of land to two loyal soldiers – one who named is property Rancho El Conejo – thus becoming the basis of the Conejo Valley. Conejo means “rabbit” in Spanish, of which there are likely some tens of thousands living today throughout our valley.*
