Glass Install at University of KS Hospital’s Cancer Center




Photos show a large glass sculpture, by Vernon Brejcha, that we finished today for University of Kansas Hospital’s new Cancer Center.  It’s in the old Sprint Headquarters, which is a pretty big joint.  There are some interesting stories from that time about one of Sprint’s former execs and the IRS, but I’ll not go there.  However I believe the upshot was louder than a pin-drop.  What I don’t get though, is when someone has more houses than they can live in, a private jet, and god-knows-what-else, why income tax evasion?  Maybe like Bogart said to Edward G. Robinson in Key Largo: “What is it you want, Johnnie?  I tell you what you want: More.” 

But we all have our faults, including me. 

100 pieces of glass on this pup.  600 lbs.  Took two days to install, but I didn’t do it.  Erin Holliday led the project, with my two sons assisting.  Erin’s one of the best glass installers I know–when she isn’t running the Mattie Rhodes Art Center.  Me?  I just take bad pictures.  Better pictures will follow.  Grand Opening next week.
