Art2According to the artist it was made from crap accumulated in his desk.

“I pretty much just couldn’t bring myself to throw the stuff out…especially the stress cow,” said the artist. “So, I just glued it to an old piece of cardboard and threw it behind the credenza.”

Discovered by janitors when they were cleaning the office, the work was recognized as a significant work of art and turned over to the State Foundation of Culture and the Arts. Now a part of their permanent collection and valued at over $100,000, the masterpiece of constructivism has been loaned to the office of Representative Bob McDermott where it be displayed during the Art at the Capitol event on April 1 from 4:30 to 7:00 pm.
