IOWA CITY (KWWL) - In the hunt for a real Herky, we found that the "Herky on Parade" initiative was started by the Iowa City/Coralville Area Visitor's Bureau. It was meant to bring people closer to the University of Iowa, and reinvigorate the Hawkeye spirit.
About 75 statues of Herky the Hawkeye were created. Each one started out a blank, white, 6-foot tall sculpture. Artists then took them and turned them into something unique. They include Hayden Herky, Galactic Herky, Firefighter Herky, Officer Herky, and more.
