Conshohocken artists create butter sculpture for New York State Fair for 19th year

Conshohocken artists Jim Victor and Marie Pelton recently spent 10-days creating a butter sculptor at the New York State Fair. The sculpture was commissioned by the American Dairy Association North East, which unveiled it on the eve of the fair’s opening day.

The theme for the sculpture is “Back to School, Sports and Play… You’re Gonna Need Milk for That,” in recognition of the state’s preparation for kids returning to school and recreation activities this fall.

You can watch a time-lapse of the creation of the sculpture below.
