Delivery Day

Sculptor and metalworker Andy Cobb personally delivers each commissioned piece, loading, unpacking, and supervising the installation of each sculpture to your outdoor space or exhibit.

“The whole process was professional and well-planned. The setup was timely and organized, as was the break down at the end of the exhibit. There were no special requirements for our garden for the setup. We received great support from Mr.Cobb during the exhibit as well.”

“Ribbit the Exhibit drew in people who have not been to the gardens for years. We have had people who have come in four or five times to see the frogs again and again. It has been really effective.”

“Upon seeing Cobb’s frogs, we knew that Ribbit would be a perfect draw. It is impossible to deny their appeal. Even harder to deny is the fact that overall numbers were up significantly. The whimsy of Cobb’s sculptures was appreciated by everyone who visited, both young and young at heart.”
