Delaware County Bison-Tennial project

Named: Neolin, the Lenape word for “Enlightened One”

The Bison-tennial Public Art Project was created by the Indiana Association of United Ways as a way to LIVE UNITED in celebrating Indiana’s bicentennial in 2016. United Way of Delaware County convened a committee to lead the project locally. This committee included key partners from the Muncie Arts & Culture Council, the Community Foundation of Muncie & Delaware County, City of Muncie, and Delaware County’s Bicentennial Activities Coordinator.

This project, made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation of Muncie & Delaware County, engaged community members with Muncie’s history and the state symbol. The 5’x 8′ bison is located at Tuhey Park.
