Ichabods Around Town

In honor of Washburn University’s 150th year in 2015, the Ichabod became Topeka’s newest form of eclectic street décor.

Washburn University, along with community partners, highlighted the unique Ichabod mascot for Ichabods Around Town, an art-icon event that features fiberglass Ichabod statues decorated by local and regional artists and positioned around Topeka.

The 5-foot-tall Ichabod statues have been installed throughout Topeka. The statues were fabricated by Chicago Fiberglass Works. John Conklin, with Shorey Metal Works, and DJ Hagans, Conklin’s employee and also a Washburn University student, installed the statues. KBS Constructors, Inc. graciously donated time to install the statues’ concrete bases.
