To celebrate Polo America’s 25th Anniversary in 2014, the organization hosted an original art exhibition.  Renowned artists from around the world painted a limited number of fiberglass polo players on horseback. The statues measure 5 feet 6 inches and were displayed at a number of art exhibitions around the country.  The artists had the option of showing the horse and rider as realistic team or they could be painted at the artist’s discretion, while keeping the structural integrity of the form intact.  Patricia Levey’s agent, Jeanne Chisolm suggested Pat answer a “call for entries” for a 3D polo pony and rider.

Pat tells The Rickie Report, ‘I answered a ‘Call to Artists’ and was accepted to paint a whimsical horse shopping on Worth Avenue and Rodeo Drive. He was shown on April 19th at a Large Polo Exhibition game and party in Wellington,FL, traveled to Georgia for 45 days, and then on to San Diego where he will be auctioned off. As an artist I get a % of the proceeds and the rest goes to the Marines “Semper Fi” charity for their wounded warriors.”

 

Pat takes The Rickie Report readers through the process of her creation:

Pat painted the horse gold.  The leather is copper, while the polo player ‘s skin and boots are silver.  Using bronze to accent his clothing lets the colors of the ladies  shopping and the shopping bags themselves stand out.

The polo player’s helmet is a bright blue and the buttons on his clothing is gold.  Pat used red for an accent color. She integrated the clocks on Worth Avenue in her design as well.

The Rickie Report spoke with Mr. Randy Russell, Director of Polo America. He shared, “Pat’s horse is whimsical! Her concept to use actual shopping bags from stores on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach,FL  plus Rodeo Drive in CA was brilliant. We look forward to the auction, where people from around the world will bid on all of the entries.”
