Mother Goose Land: Revisited

Picture Frames

Mother Goose Land Revisited is an artistic enterprise aimed at keeping the playful inspiration of Mother Goose Land alive with commemorative art themed to the former attractions of the park.  A percentage of each sale will go toward funding an initiative by the Canton Parks Department to install permanent musical percussion instruments on the newly refurbished grounds of Mother Goose Land Park.

The gates of Mother Goose Land, a children’s theme park in Canton, Ohio, welcomed over 60,000 visitors upon its inaugural year in 1958, and it remained open for 31 years until it’s closing in 1989. For decades a giant concrete whale named Willy and a small castle tower remaining on the grounds were the only vestiges of this once cherished space, until the Canton Parks Department rehabilitated the grounds in 2014.

Humpty-DumptyHumpty Dumpty

By David McDowel

Picture frame
$150.00

Description:
Cast Aluminum
Fits one vertical 5”x7” photo
Hangs on wall, or table top easel.
Limited edition of 500

A reference to the Humpty Dumpty attraction at the park. During routine maintenance, the original Humpty was once removed from his perch atop the wall and placed inside a shed on the premises of the park. The statue was mistakenly left in the shed and forgotten, leading park administrators to believe that the statue had been stolen and lost forever. Humpty was replaced with a sub-par copy, only to have the original Humpty re-discovered in the same shed years later by a maintenance worker!
