Mrs. Bigfoot @ Socrates Sculpture Park

I was taking a walk through the Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City last weekend and guess who I saw? It was Mrs. Bigfoot.

The Socrates Sculpture Park is an outdoor museum and exhibition space with an internationally renowned artist in residence program. It is also a community garden where local residents can bring their families and pets to enjoy the outdoor space. The area, located on the waterfront of north west Queens, used to a landfill and dumping ground until a coalition of artists and community leaders cleaned and transformed it into a park in 1986. Aside from the park, another popular attraction in the area is the Noguchi Museum.

This 6-foot tall female Bigfoot was one of the sculptures at the Socrates Sculpture Park. A Bigfoot is an apelike animal said to be found in the remote forests of North America. Although numerous sightings have been reported, none has been caught. Some believe that they do not exist..

What do you think? Do you believe in Bigfoot?

Bigfoot is an interdimensional being, and I saw one as a kid. No one believed me....but I saw it at night looking in the window. Its eyes shone like a cats does in the dark. I didn't feel it meant any harm...it was curious!

Bigfoot, I've never seen, but Socrates (Jose) appears almost everyday on the Portuguese TV... lol!

What a cheeky interpretation of the idea! And why is she "mrs" and not "ms", I ask? ;-)

The Bigfoot is a female. Notice the boobies?!?!?

Ms or Mrs or female. It just "now" occurred to me that the bigfoot species probably do not have a word for the "ladies" in the clan. I doubt the hairy breasts, (if that is hair) not even a baby would suckle those and have a mouthful of hair.

An amazing picture. Thanks for posting it. It made my day.

The "lady" needs a shave ;-)

Love the sculptors sense of humor! Great photo--do I believe it? I could believe in just about anything if there's a persuasive argument attached. I take that back because it makes me sound too gullible. I love fantasy so that's a possiblity for gullibility!

Aunt Martha! OMG..she's been mising for years. How she made it to the park in NYC, I guess we'll never know. *put this on my list of places to visit on my next trip.

We still don't know how gravity works...so, yes..anything's possible.
