Bison-tennial Art Project
We are holding a county wide contest to name our Bison! The winning submission will ride with the Bison in the annual Valparaiso Popcorn Parade.
In partnership with Indiana Association of United Ways and the Indiana Bicentennial Commission, the United Way of Porter County and Prompt Ambulance will be participating in the 2016 Bison-tennial Public Art Project. Taking place in the coming year to celebrate Indiana’s 200th birthday, this project will comprise of a 5 foot tall fiberglass bison that will be designed to represent the history of Porter.
Our goal is to present the history of Porter County painted on the bison for the people of Porter County. We are hoping to portray key events and important residents who have moved the county, state or country forward over... the last 200 years.
