Will Rogers isn't the only guy keeping an eye on Main Street this week.

Twenty-five scarecrows have popped up along Claremore Main Street this week—giving Will some company.

Each of the scarecrows is sponsored by a local business or group—and the project itself is the brainchild of Studio B, a Claremore art studio.

Barbie Rodriguez, owner of Studio B, said she is "thrilled to introduce each of the personality-packed scarecrows."

The goal, she said, is collaboration and creativity.

"One of the best stories I've heard so far is that several departments came together to create one of the scarecrows. They may not necessarily have known each other but they got to know each other's talents and strengths as they worked on it," she said. "And that's what I love to see, everyone coming together for a fun community event."

The community can visit the Studio B Facebook page to vote for their favorite, any time in the next two weeks.

"The top 10 will be up for live auction during the next Food Truck Thursday event, Sept. 28 and the remaining 15 will be up for silent auction," Rodriguez said.

"The auction is to raise money for downtown art projects…like a downtown mural or something everyone can enjoy."
