We had this opening on June 12. Went beautifully. 250 people by night’s end and I don’t know how much wine. Sold 10 pieces thus far and expect to sell many more. Good. Now I can break out the Harley and take some time off.
Arlie Regier installation, stainless steel, University of Northern Iowa. Thanks to Peter Goulet and President Ruud. Arlie created this piece for a Leawood collector years ago. Dude moved to Carmel and asked us to sell it for him. No problem–and it sold for much more than what he paid. Arlie, you were and always will be a genius.
We periodically make brief videos about our various art projects. Our clients love that, as do the artists. It’s good for regional culture, and for everyone involved. If you can glean any ideas from this process, feel free. UKH has been a great client since 2002. Because of their vision and generosity, we’ve been able to place work by scores of regional artists. Be sure to approach hospitals your area about doing the same. Here’s a link to the film.
