Red Pony

Red Pony is a painted steel sculpture welded by Denton-based artist Russ Connell. The piece has called Old Town Coppell home for more than six years and was introduced to the city as a part of the Coppell Arts Council’s Art Splash project, a biennial art exhibition that takes place in Old Town and Andy Brown Park East. Standing seven feet, Red Pony is a poignant and prominent work marking Connell’s introduction to publicly exhibited artwork, more of which can now be found around Coppell’s parks.
