Fatbird

The “Fatbird” was adopted as the centerpiece of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort’s logo because it captures the spirit of this special place, fun, whimsical and full of life. A rare bird indeed, “Fatbird” is a delightful image that was personally created by Maggie Hardy Magerko, the resort’s President and Owner.

Fatbird was inspired by one of Maggie’s favorite art pieces, Fernando Botero’s “Little Bird,” which proudly welcomes guests from its perch in front of the resort’s grand Chateau Lafayette. Maggie believed the sculpture embodied the whimsy of Nemacolin, a place that truly tries to offer something for everyone. For that and so many other reasons, Nemacolin is as a rare bird in the resort industry as Botero’s “little” bird is to the art world.

With the Botero sculpture in mind and paying homage to the Pennsylvania state bird, the grouse, Maggie commissioned wildlife artist Barney Boller and challenged him to create his interpretation of a “big, fat bird” … thus resulting in our logo’s name.

In 1996, “Fatbird” was unveiled and a new resort logo embraced.

So, tip your hat to Botero’s “Little Bird” as you enter our main entrance, and smile as our Nemacolin Fatbird greats you in unexpected places. And next time you pass a new guest wondering, “What’s Fatbird,” you can confidentially say, just as Maggie would, “Fatbird is Nemacolin’s mascot. He’s fun and whimsical, just like the expectations and experiences of this unique resort.”
