Thomas Dambo Troll Coming to Pease Park
Installation of a Thomas Dambo Troll will soon be underway in Pease Park! Following an extensive community engagement and review process with the City of Austin, the project is approved and the Thomas Dambo team will arrive in Austin in late February of 2024 to initiate the build.
Thomas Dambo is a critically acclaimed artist and designer and a self-described “Recycling Art Activist” who creates public art sculptures from recycled and reused materials. He specializes in making sculptures from wasted materials, such as scrap wood, and has installed more than 100 trolls worldwide.
The artwork is fully funded and maintained by Pease Park Conservancy.
