The Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) invited us to help them with their call for proposals for an artist-designed mini golf course to open in May 2016. After talking about our mini golf work at the museum in the Fall of 2015, we were inspired to submit our own idea for this Indiana themed course.
Cats. We have three of them between the two of us and they bring us much joy and entertainment. We love our cats: Zack, Moz and Rex. Through the Internet Cat Video Festival (started in our home of Minneapolis), we were introduced to the magical creature that is Lil Bub, the pride of Bloomington, Indiana. After learning the story of Bub and meeting this brave and special cat, Mr. Tee was deeply moved. He had a challenged grey tabby cat that passed 9 years ago and instantly became a fan of Bub.
As we thought about ideas for the Indiana themed course, Lil Bub immediately came to mind. We consulted with Lil Bub and her human companion, Mike. Bub shared with us her idea for a mini golf hole and gave us the name: Lil Golf.
During the cold of winter 2016, we transformed our basement in to a workshop. Below are the process photos of this inspired creation. We leave today (Friday April 15) to install this hole at the IMA for people to play throughout the Summer. More updates and photos from the whole course to follow so stay tuned!
Good job, Bub!
We strongly encourage you to support Lil Bub’s Big Fund. 100% of funds collected are distributed as grants by the ASPCA to animal welfare organizations across the country to help homeless pets with special needs.
