Attention Iowa State Fair Fans and Isabel Bloom Fans!

The 2024 limited-edition sculpture for the Iowa Stat Fair, available ONLY at the Blue Ribbon Foundation Merchandise booths at the Iowa State Fair is ….. drumroll please …. the “Wild Rose”.

As the state flower of Iowa, this sculpture is special for many more reasons.  It is cast in our white concrete mix and hand-painted with bright pink petals and a yellow center.  The words “IOWA STATE FAIR” are imbedded along the underside of the petals.  Each sculpture is signed with our trademark “Isabel Bloom 2024” and L.E. (limited-edition).

Profits from the sale of the “Wild Rose” directly benefit the Foundation’s goal of raising funds to help preserve and improve the Iowa State Fairgrounds.

Thank you for shopping and supporting the Iowa State Fair!

Not only is this our 10th in a series of exclusive, limited-edition sculptures for the Fair, it is also the first fair sculpture designed by artist Emma Dengler.

Emma has been working for the company since 2015 and currently holds the position of mold maker.  Daughter of company co-owner and sculptor Donna Young, Emma has been surrounded by Isabel Bloom sculptures her entire life and the “Wild Rose” is one of her very first creations in a line of many more to come.

Have an idea for next year’s Iowa State Fair sculpture?

We’re all EARS!!! Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments below.  Thanks for reading!  See you at the Fair Aug. 8 – 18, 2024.
