About the Artist

Artist: Don Debaker

Artist Statement:
These Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaurs made their debut outside the Neville Public Museum in 2002. Later named Mama and Baby Bones, these sculptures have become emblems of the Neville’s mission and identity. Like the Neville they are products of cooperation, generosity, talent and community support.

Green Bay area sculptor, Don Debaker, was a boilermaker-turned artist, who fused his love for art and his welding skills by making bird and butterfly sculptures. Inspired by his find of a large industrial-sized chain, perfect for a T-Rex backbone, Debaker began work on his first dinosaur.

A gift from Marguerite “Mugs” Gardner. Special thanks to Renco Machine Company, Inc. & Ideal Crane Rental, Inc.
