Artist profile: Tara Hush and her team at Marks Design have more than 20 years of design experience creating everything from packaging to art installations. They were instrumental in the creation of “Pigtone,” one of the flying pig statues displayed around the city. They chose “The Hero Within” for their Bearcat to honor the everyday hero on the street who, through a small and kind deed or a simple act, makes the difference for those in need. They used reflective mirror panels with vinyl letters to create their shining hero star. Marks Design team includes: Tara Hush, Brandon Wells, Ben Ludtke, Maddy Hall, Lindsay Moore, Hai Phan, Molly Hennessey, Heather Davis, Lauren Deaton, Carly Emmerich and Kris Linkugel.
