Bobby's Bama: Carnegie Arts Trail, Strut and Crow

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

Brightly colored roosters can be found around Decatur this summer as a part of a fundraiser by Carnegie Visual Arts Center.

They're large metal sculptures painted by local artists and placed at different businesses.

"In years past we've done the dragon fly and the butterfly.  This year we chose the rooster because it was symbol of a new beginning a new day.  And it is the largest fundraiser of the Carnegie," said Jo Ann Malcom with the Carnegie Visual Arts Center.

Sponsors purchase the birds for a thousand dollars. 

They hope to raise at least $30,000 with the project.

 "I wasn't sure about them at first. I kind of thought roosters were kind of corny...umm but now that I see them I think they are very sweet. I like them a lot," said resident Kristi Chenault.

This outdoor exhibit will give people something to crow about from April 9th through August 15th.
