Lyman Whitaker Installation in Naples

whitaker 1 whitaker 2We’ve been representing the sculptor Lyman Whitaker since 2008. Periodically I place  large groupings of his works in different locations around the country. It’s good biz, and anyway I love to travel. This install is at the Naples Art Center, and man do they love it! So do we.

Goodbye Moses

Had to put beautiful Moses, our gallery dog, down last month. Tumor. Here we’re on the vet’s porch. He was one special pup–once we got him past his memories of abuse. Died with his head on my lap. We all miss and love you, Buddy. See you on the other side.

Sculpture Installation for Kansas City Royals

We installed this cool piece, by KCAI alum William Lobdell, to help bring the Royals luck. Apparently that worked–along with world-class play. Made of 1000 baseball-related objects, it’s in the main lobby just inside the doors. 6′ x 6′. Thanks to everyone at Royals for giving us such a great gig. Congratulations on a beautiful World Series Win!

New Art Gallery at Sumner Academy

After 10 years of mentoring kids at Sumner–a great college prep school in downtown KCK–they decided to name a gallery after me. So I said, Hot Damn! Thanks so much to everyone at Sumner. I adore you all. What do I do as a mentor? Reassure kids from the city that they’re just as bright as their white counterparts–and HELP THEM GET INTO COLLEGE. Thanks to all my clients for writing big checks.

Short Video on Commissioned Sculpture for Barnett Helzberg

Helzbergs

Barnett Helzberg is a legend in the world of philanthropy and business. He sold Helzberg Jewels to Warren Buffet 20 years ago, and with the money built a lavish K-12 school for kids from the inner city, helped build the Kauffman Performing Arts Center in KC, and has given away millions to various nonprofits that he and his wife Shirley believe in.

We were commissioned to create a very cool sculpture for this generous couple, and this film tells the story. I think you’ll dig it:
