Soupbone Creative Painted 2 Hokie Birds

The Blacksburg Partnership presented Gobble de Art, a campaign to increase interest in and awareness of Blacksburg. The initiative was designed to bring visitors into town while fostering an appreciation for the visual arts and the local art community. Gobble de Art featured seventy-five fiberglass Hokie Bird statues that were decorated and painted by regional artists and Virginia Tech art alumni. The birds were sponsored by local and regional businesses and prominently displayed throughout the town of Blacksburg.

Commissioned by Moog Components on North Main Blacksburg, VA, to promote their motion products that are used in everything from sea to space. This bird was tackled and stolen by Va Tech college students, but soon returned and repainted, it now lives inside.


Commissioned by A Cleaner World on South Main St. in Blacksburg, VA, and is visible from the road and facing customers as they pass the drive-thru window. This patriotic football player is in authentic Virginia Tech gear, and even with a cape for that "super-hero" effect.
