About This Project


Smokebrush’s nutty, giant, drivable Toaster sculpture was created in 2005 as a mobile means to take art out into the community. We collaborated with artist engineer Tim Eckert to manifest this dream. Made from a bread delivery truck, this large chrome rovin’ toaster thrills locals at outdoor events and parades year ’round! You can find life-like pieces of toast, hula girls, obscure messages and corporate sponsor logos popping up at any time. The toaster has complete costumes for every occasion including the Pridefest Parade (style a la princess in a gown) and the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Parade (with longhorn steer horns and a cowboy hat). This beloved mobile sculpture is also the subject of the 2009 Smokebrush Porter beer label
