“There’s a Sucker Born Every Minute: Re-creating the Cardiff Giant” is a project by Syracuse Artist Ty Marshal which re-creates the Cardiff Giant according to the original size specifications. Ty will be using Hypertufa, a mix of Portland cement, peat moss, and perlite (which creates a “lighter concrete” that can withstand harsh weather conditions). The project’s focus defines a lineage to Central New York’s history as a creative community, how religious fundamentalism has affected modern culture in Upstate New York and throughout the nation, and the origin of arts and entertainment (notably “pop culture”) in the United States, and how arts and culture serves as an economic engine.
