Ed Waldman and the 2007 Kansas Inauguration


Ed Waldman, Zohar

One of many of the pieces I’ve had the honor of helping to jury into Governor Sebelius’ inaugural art exhibit is this one, by Ed Waldman. Talk about unusual. It’s about 8′ high, and is made of stacked masonite, roughly cut and textured so that the entire stack has this jagged and dynamic–yet random–appearance.

Ed is actually a refined woodworker of the highest order. But I get the sense that his real passion lies in this direction. The committee agreed.

I don’t mind saying, this exhibition will be unlike any in the history of the state. Cool by me.
