Heads or Tails? USGS Contractor Participates in Public Art Project

Carey Hamburg and his creation
Creative crustacean: Taking artistic license, Carey Hamburg (shown here with his creative crustacean) transformed the fiberglass pelican into a hot-and-spicy red crawfish, a.k.a. mudbug.
USGS contractor Carey Hamburg, who does photography, videography, and Web-site work at the National Wetlands Research Center (Lafayette, LA), was featured recently in the Times of Acadiana article "Faces to Watch." Carey was noted for his artistic contribution to the Pelicans on Parade public art project, similar to projects that displayed cow statues in Chicago and fish statues in New Orleans. The program features nearly 100 4-ft-tall fiberglass pelican statues that have been "nested" throughout the Lafayette area.

Local artists uniquely painted each pelican. Carey created a Mardi Gras pelican and one representing a hot-and-spicy red crawfish, a local Cajun delicacy from the Louisiana wetlands. Part of the sponsorship money from each pelican will go to local arts-in-education programs.
