Zara & Zug Zug

Artists Zach Schumack and Ian Molloy-Busse of Leonic Collective are the artists who created Zug Zug and Zara, two mannequin cave people ensconced in plexiglass. Originally Zug Zug was commissioned for an ad agency, but during Covid, Leonic Collective worked with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board to hide Zug Zug in Theodore Wirth Park. Recently, Zug Zug and his companion Zara got to spend their winter in Detroit Lakes.
