crO!ak , 2010

by Jim Classe

Owner: City of Omaha (Parks Recreation)

Series: Take A Seat

Additional Information: Donated by Prochaska & Associates and Dolphens Design and Sign. The frog theme was inspired by the lagoon at the Gene Leahy Mall, giving the impression that the amphibian might have crawled up from the water’s edge for a snack. The name “crO!ak” represents not only what frogs say, but also what the fly is about to do! Omaha’s “O!” logo is found right in the middle. The playful theme is meant to appeal to both young and old alike and is fitting for the playground area of the Mall. The frog has captured a forlorn fly on the tip of his extended tongue, and he may just happen to catch a few Omahans in the process. The undulating tongue’s surface provides high and low seating for people of all sizes. The frog sits on a lily pad to help complete the theme. The bench is fabricated from steel plates with welded connections. The steel was sandblasted to smooth all surfaces and was then given a powder coated finish for permanence. Bright green and pink colors accent the playful theme. A sacrificial anti-graffiti coating (Prosoco SC-1) has also been applied to the bench for protection.
