At Domain Homes, we have a deep appreciation for art, sculptures and statues. We create our own version of art daily while building houses and realize what an impact it can have on the surrounding area. That is why we are so excited that George Sugarman’s untitled abstract statue, popularly known as “The Exploding Chicken” is being reassembled in the Channel District round-about, just north of the Florida Aquarium.
The 19-ton, 36-foot tall steel and aluminum sculpture resided at Kennedy Boulevard and Ashley Drive for 22 years before it was dismantled in 2010. Most of the labor and materials for the relocation effort were donated, according to Mayor Bob Buckhorn. The Exploding Chicken will be refreshed once it is reassembled with a new coat of paint.
Because of our desirable climate, plethora of wildlife and alluring scenery, many artists call Tampa Bay area home. We are proud to have some of the finest art museums in the region such as the Tampa Museum of Art and the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg.
