This ox was sold during the online auction.

Artist:   Kristen Cermele, Lauren Meyer & Laura Valenza

Sponsor:   Recreation Foundation of Hopewell Valley

Artist's Design Statement

Winning Bid:  $1,200

Olly Olly Referee’s name is a play on “Olly Olly Oxen Free,” a line often shouted to signal changes in children’s games. We believe Olly’s whimsical design captures the spirit of sport—the excitement of play and the changes in the games that have been and will be part of us for generations.

Olly wears the uniform of a sports referee whose bold black and white stripes swirl around a baseball, basketball, and lacrosse ball, to name a few, to represent a wide range of sports played on and off the field. The large whistle around his neck is decorated with the Hopewell Valley logo and black and gold signature colors. With his uniform on, Olly is ready to make all the right calls.
