Today (Sep. 22), Nessie will be spotted in the Grand River, but theres no need to fear the sea monster.
The stateside Nessie is actually a huge art deco piece created by four friends for the national ArtPrize competition.
Artist Richard App and his buddies have been working non-stop on Nessie for the last 16 days in preparation for the launch.
Its taken them endless all-nighters to build the sea monster out of high-density foam, wood, and steel.
Its 100 feet long, 18 feet high, 24 feet wide, and weighs approximately 3,000 pounds.
App says theyve made it so realistic, people will look twice.
Itll float down the river for the next two weeks plenty of time for sightings to be reported to authorities.
Though the piece will be crane-lifted into the river, App is unsure what will become of Nessie after her river journey.
