"Centennial Celebration" was sponsored by the Shawnee Centennial Committee. It is a standing horse displayed on the south side of Shawnee City Hall at 16 W. 9th Street. It is primarily blue, with paintings of the flag, and paintings of the Governor of Oklahoma at statehood and at the Centennial. The artist is Sheryl Cozad.
In 2007, the City of Shawnee sponsored the Horse in the City program as part of its Public Arts Project. Life-sized fiberglass horses were sponsored by companies, organizations and individuals in the Shawnee area. Choosing one of four poses (Standing Thoroughbred, Standing Arabian, Grazing and Rearing), each sponsor worked with an artist, designing how their horse would be painted. Some depict paintings specific to the sponsor's business or interests, and others depict Oklahoma history and other generic designs.
The horses are displayed throughout the City of Shawnee and it is such a joy to suddenly spot one alongside the road. Enjoy finding as many of these as you can.
