Butter Sculpture

Butter Sculpture

On Display Daily • Sponsored by the Massachusetts Dairy Promotion Board
Each year, hundreds of pounds of butter are plastered on wire frames to create a sculpture made entirely from butter. In fact, over 600 pounds of butter, donated by Agrimark/Cabot Creamery, are used for the creations. This work all takes place in a specially designed cooler located under the Mallary Rotunda during The Big E.
