Norfolk, Va. (WTKR) - A crane delivered the giant yellow rubber ducky earlier this week along with its seven ton barge.

The forty foot inflatable duck is anchored at the Hague for everyone to see.

So why a duck? NewsChannel 3 asked the Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, behind it all.

“It was just a great idea to bring people to connect to each other via duck. It just says that all the waters in the world are a bathtub, it was that simple,” Hofman said.

The duck is all part of the celebration of the Chrysler Museum of Art reopening. You can check it out now until May 26th.
