Kraken Gets Released

Last year's popular art sculpture from the Quad has been permanently installed at Ellis-Porter Park in Jefferson City, Mo.

The octopus sculpture known as “The Quad Kraken” has found a new home.

Created by students in Danielle Yakle’s Introduction to the Visual Arts class, the sculpture spent much of last fall on display near the library and Kirk Memorial. As with other pieces constructed by the class, Yakle and the students work with businesses, agencies and other groups to find permanent locations after their initial campus display.

For the octopus, that new home is Ellis-Porter Park in Jefferson City, Mo., where it is situated next to the Riverside Pool. Yakle and student Brenden Harrison worked with Jefferson City park and landscape planner Andy Carroll on the details, and during the summer the sculpture was transported and installed.
