“The H.O.P. Rabbits were commissioned by Hall Financial in 2000 to inhabit the landscape of the Texas Sculpture Garden. The native Texas Jackrabbits are placed to interact with each other as well as the visitors to the sculpture garden, and to add a little more “HOP” to Hall Office Park.” - David Iles, Artist
