As you can see on his website, his work is often playful in nature.

Rubber Duck is quite a world traveller, having been seen in Holland, France, Brazil, Japan, New Zealand, Belguim, Australia, China, and Azerbaijan. It made its first American appearance last fall in Pittsburgh. This will be its first East coast appearance.

The sculpture, made from PVC and kept inflated by a fan on its supporting barge, is just inches under 40 feet tall. It will be on display in the Hague Inlet, right across Memorial Place from the Museum's front entrance.

For more information, the Chrysler Rubber Duck has his own website and Facebook page.
