About the Dan Patch Project

The Dan Patch Project is a group of volunteers who, together with renown equine sculptor Alexa King and fiscal sponsor Springboard for the Arts, are working to install permanent bronze sculptures of Dan Patch at the west end of the Minnesota State Fair’s Grandstand and of the horse and M.W. Savage at the City of Savage’s Public Library. The group’s goal is to commemorate the 110-year anniversary of the great horse’s record setting pace at the 1906 Minnesota State Fair.
