CROWN POINT, Ind.  / Sept. 3, 2019 – Although they are more accustomed to showing homes to clients, a team of local real estate agents had a hoot recently with a different kind of showing.
The group at Weichert, Realtors® – The Moke Agency celebrated the public unveiling of Escrow the Owl in front of their Crown Point office on Main Street. The real estate agency sponsored the piece, which was created by local artist Casey King.
“We had a lot fun collaborating with Casey on the design of an owl that represents some of the great things about our city and company,” said Joe Moke, the broker/owner of the Weichert® affiliate.
Perched atop a nightscape of the city’s most recognizable landmarks as well as properties listed by the Weichert® affiliate, the 4 feet tall hand-painted fiberglass owl is one of the featured pieces in this year’s “Owl You Need Is Love” public art project supporting Humane Indiana’s Shelter and Clinic.
Local schools, organizations and businesses, like Moke’s, had the opportunity to purchase or sponsor an owl and work with a local artist on design of the sculpture to help support this year’s art project. The finished pieces will be displayed at the sponsor’s location for the entirety of the exhibit, which runs until Oct. 15.
“We were honored to be a part of such a unique community event that brings local businesses, schools and artists together to help animals in local shelters,” added Moke. “We also thank everyone who came out to our unveiling and posed for pictures with Escrow the Owl.”
Weichert, Realtors® – The Moke Agency is an independently owned and operated Weichert affiliate. The office serves all of Northwest Indiana.
