The Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University
 

Meeting the Challenge: Aggie Stampede

In 2012, the Center for Persons with Disabilities celebrates its 40th anniversary. To commemorate this milestone we are partnering with the Logan Downtown Alliance, on a project that will bring unique works of public art to historic downtown Logan. This project brings together Utah State University, the City of Logan and local businesses to Celebrate 40 years of achievements at the Center for Persons with Disabilities. It will also raise awareness of disability issues, highlight the talents of local artists and promote tourism to our beautiful valley.

This summer, Aggie Bull sculptures will appear throughout the city of Logan and the Utah State University campus. Each Bull will be presented by a local sponsor and decorated by a local artist. These displays will also provide information about disability-related issues and history. The proceeds and awareness raised by this event will help the CPD continue meeting challenges faced by people with disabilities for the next 40 years and beyond.

Sponsors/Artists

Center for Persons with Disabilities Meet Lil' Marv, the CPD-sponsored bull. He's named in honor of Marvin Fifield, one of the CPD's founders. Lil' Marv is painted in Aggie Blue chalkboard paint which will allow him to be decorated time and time again as he appears at various Cache Valley events. He might even serve as a novel bulletin board when he's residing near the Main CPD office.
