Geocache Description:

Near Chauvin, LA on the East side of the Bayou. Daylight hours. Be cautious of uneven pathway.

Kenny Hill paid bills by working as a brick layer in south east Louisiana. He started working on this folk art world in Chauvin, Louisiana around 1989. In January 2000, after an disagreement with his landlord, Kenny abruptly left the site. Kenny left over 100 concrete sculptures; his lighthouse is 45 feet tall and is the most prominent piece in the garden. The sculptures are a profound mixture of Biblical reference, Cajun colors, and the evident pain and struggle of the artist’s life. Most figures—black, white, male, female, child, or solider—are guided, supported, or lifted by seemingly weightless angels. Some of the concrete figures look like Kenny.

Chauvin, Louisiana is a good hours drive south of New Orleans.

Wander through the park and see if you can see what Kenny was trying to tell you.

Cache is a tupperware container that is NOT in the art work. Since I live out of state, this cache will be maintained for me by local people.
