Unofficially named Buddy. This hippo is a well-known Route 66 icon. Since its restoration in 1990, this humorous hippo has been seen all around town – at a wedding, sitting in Broadway, fishing in the lake at Oklahoma Christian University and atop several buildings. It is now filled with concrete. This piece was added to the art list in August of 2013 because it was part of the Edmond Convention and Visitor’s Bureau’s list of Public Art in Edmond.
