JACKSON, Wyo. \u2014 Local artist Haley Badenhop continues to make her mark in public spaces. Her latest project includes giving the Moose sculpture outside of the Snake River Lodge and Spa a much-needed facelift.\r\n\r\nAs a part of the Teton Village Association\u2019s public art initiative, activating and beautifying vital spaces, Badenhop was commissioned to bring new life into the aging sculpture.\u00a0The Moose now dons a new \u201ctram red\u201d coat and plays host to a vibrant winter scene that represents the Jackson Hole Mountain culture.\r\n\r\n\u201cAs a project, this was a great way to reinvent the moose that was becoming weathered; it\u2019s an entire new way to view a moose and a bit unexpected,\u201d Badenhop shared. \u201cPainting him was an interesting process because it created a lot of feedback from passers-by. People freely expressed their opinions to me whether they loved it, found it fun, or didn\u2019t like the change. I think art is most useful when it creates some type of reaction and hopefully that does this. But most of all, I hope everyone looks at the motifs painted within the moose and takes part in whatever is their favorite part of Teton Village.\u201d\r\n\r\nBadenhop grew up on a farm in a town of 500 in Northwest Ohio. With a passion for drawing and a degree in fashion design, she found the mountains\u00a0inspiring and left the flat\u00a0Midwest for some altitude after college.\u00a0She now creates art full-time in Jackson Hole\u00a0and around the US, developing a unique style of line art and mural artwork that is sought out by well-known companies to bring their brand to life.
