The Story of the Garfield Statues in Delaware County, Indiana.

Delaware County Indiana is fortunate to be the home of Jim Davis, creator of the famous lasagna eating cat Garfield. Garfield turned 25 in 2008 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.

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 artists, 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.

Muncie Ballet

Muncie Ballet has been creating memories and magical moments for children. When a child performs for an audience, they can imagine, dream and discover their talents. Community performances in classical dance and music have set us apart from other dance studios, which have recitals o r competitions. Each fall and spring, hundreds of Indiana school children wait anxiously for the curtain to open, for many, their first ballet performance. In fact, since 1998, Muncie Ballet matinee performances for school have reached 18,000 children.
