The new Staten Island Museum has a giant mastodon bursting through the wall into the museum.
It is a beautiful piece and they seem to specialize in museum exhibits. I know you mentioned New England,
but just in case…
The Staten Island Children’s Museum had a giant praying mantis standing guard outside. I believe it is made
of car parts, scrap metal, etc. by a local artist named Lenny Price. It is a really charming addition to the site.
Sounds like a fun exhibit! What is better than a giant ant!
