The Return Of Bumper Man

Some of you may remember Bumper Man from years ago. He is a sculpture made totally from car bumpers and other parts. Made by a priest, he sat in front of a church for many years. The church being sold, he was moved to the local art park, where he sits atop the roof.


I enjoy visiting him whenever we are in the area.


And now he is joining in the fight against covid with his own matching mask! Fist bumps for Bumper Man!
