The Butter Sculpture – on my Texas State Fair Bucket List


I love to see the butter sculpture every year at the Texas State Fair.  It’s always a surprise because you never know what the subject will be but it’s always wonderful.  It’s housed in the Creative Arts building in a sub-zero glass class and the scene depicted is generally life sized.  The amount of detail on the sculpture is just amazing.  This year it depicts a girl pulling her cow down the path towards the Texas State Fairgrounds entrance.  There is also a mother and her son carrying his rooster for entry into the show as well.  They are dressed in period clothing from the 1800’s.  I hope you get a chance to see it in person but if not enjoy the video.

Below are some other photos from the Creative Arts building and the adjacent Embarcadero.
