Garfield Statues of Muncie

Delaware County is fortunate to be the home of Jim Davis, creator of that famous lasagna eating cat Garfield. Garfield turned 25 in 2003 and that summer Muncie threw him a birthday

celebration. Twenty-five not-for-profit organizations joined together to commemorate his birthday. Jim Davis and Paws’ artists worked with sculptor Brian Kishel to create the Garfield Sculpt: A 48-inch masterpiece molded in rigid polymer and situated on a 31-inch base.

Then, each not-for-profit found a sponsor to purchase the sculpture, and commissioned a local artist to decorate it in a unique and ingenious way reflecting the fat cat’s personality and the theme chosen by the not-for-profit. The finished statues were then signed by the local artist, as well as by Garfield creator, Jim Davis.

Several of these still remain in Muncie. They are located in private and public spaces. As for those in public space visitors and locals alike see the wonderful photo opportunities they create.
