I was recently approached by an architect in Miami about overseeing a sculpture project for Atasehir Hospital in Istanbul. Have always wanted to go to Turkey, so I said Sure. Think I’ll swim the Hellespont, like Lord Byron–except it’s a little more polluted than in his day. More ships too. If neither of those kill me, it will all go well.
Landed this gig in Liberty for Jacob. Brilliant job, Brother. Now onto the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Dallas. That’s Bebe on the right, not Jacob. Thanks to Greg, and everyone else in Liberty who kindly to give us the contract. Jacob Burmood Sculpture.
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!
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.
