One of the 100s of installations we’ve done around the country. Love landing them, and love installing them. This one was pretty complex, and involved 300 pieces by the time we were done. Repurposed hickory beams, backlit with LEDs. Beautiful job as always, boys. Thanks to KU Med and all the great staff there.
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!

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.
Blown-glass sculpture we did for a client in Leawood. Vernon Brejcha blew the glass–brilliantly; we designed and installed. Client lives in Tuscany Reserve. Told him we used to race motocross there when it was just a field. He loved that. Photo credit Michael Robinson. LEOPOLDgallery.com
One of my Denver clients recently commissioned this Flint Hills landscape by Phil Epp. We installed it last month in his downtown condo, overlooking City Park. What a great excuse for going to CO!
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:
