This has been done a million times elsewhere but I am still game.

OSU to place 6-foot-tall 'Brutus on Parade' statues around city

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Cincinnati had painted pigs around town several years ago, and Cleveland had giant, specially-decorated guitars.

Next year, Columbus will host one of these public art projects, which Ohio State University is calling “Brutus on Parade.”

The school is looking for sponsors to help put 6-foot-2 fiberglass statues of the Buckeyes mascot around the city, to benefit the renovation planned for the campus library. The Web site for the project shows examples of possible designs for the statues, including Brutus painted to look like Elvis or Buckeyes' legendary football coach Woody Hayes.

The designs will be chosen by the sponsors.

Four statues will be unveiled at a kickoff event this Wednesday.
