Last Final Friday, I was impressed by both.</p> Wed, 02 Apr 2014 10:00:00 +0000 Lindsey Herkommer DeVries 32375 at http://kmuw.org Mechanical Sculptures In An Unusual Gallery 'Wichita Arch' Is A Living Work Of Art http://kmuw.org/post/wichita-arch-living-work-art <p></p><p></p><p><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Goldsworthy">Andy Goldsworthy</a> is a British sculptor who travels all over the world to create site-specific sculptures.

A Calder sculpture is instantly recognizable by its awkward geometric shapes delicately balanced on long spindly wires, giving it an almost skeletal look.</p> Wed, 22 Aug 2012 12:26:35 +0000 Lindsey Herkommer DeVries 5866 at http://kmuw.org Art Review: Alexander Calder Art Review: Louise Nevelson http://kmuw.org/post/art-review-louise-nevelson <p style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Louise Nevelson was a key American sculptor in the mid-20th century.

Recently, Francisco Zúñiga’s “Three Women Walking” was re-located from its original placement due to the massive renovations underway at the Rhatigan Student Center. Moving this hefty bronze sculpture was no small feat. Weighing in at two tons, it required construction equipment and precision guidance to situate the work just north of its original location.</p> Wed, 27 Jun 2012 10:00:00 +0000 Lindsey Herkommer DeVries 1353 at http://kmuw.org Art Review: Francisco Zúñiga’s “Three Women Walking” Art Review: Keeper of the Plains http://kmuw.org/post/art-review-keeper-plains <p>The Keeper of the Plains is a monumental sculpture that marks the confluence of the Big and Little Arkansas Rivers. Rising 44 feet in the air, this Cor-Ten steel sculpture of a Native American chief is a popular site for Wichita visitors and residents alike. The proud figure stands tall with his back arched, offering something invisible to the sky with his upturned palms. The crisp lines of the stylized figure give it striking silhouette. But the large headdress and waving fringe gives the figure movement and life.</p> Wed, 16 May 2012 12:20:18 +0000 Lindsey Herkommer DeVries 5936 at http://kmuw.org Art Review: Keeper of the Plains
