You will also find the flying sock monkeys ala The Wizard of OZ.

Visitors can also view a video that explains the origin and creative process of the original project.

About The Project:
“Art Begins Conversations: The Sock Monkey Project began in the fall of 2015. The project was first exhibited in the fall of 2017 at Logos Academy. The purpose for me was to take an idea and go through the creative process until the project was complete. The video documents the process and my thoughts about going through the creative process. Hopefully the installation will speak for itself!!”
– George Long
