Golden Rules of the KCAI Sculpture Dept.
I attended the 2008 Alumni Weekend with Sculpture Symposium at the Kansas City Art Institute featuring Valerie Eickmeier, Ming Fay, Shawn Brixley, and Jim Leedy. This wall goes back to the old days, even before the time when the Whole Earth Catalog was first published. In some weird way they are connected in my mind via necessary injunctions of any DYI culture. Art schools are always ahead of the curve of even alternative culture. Work ethic, entrepreneurial focus, team work, and open critique processes, were stressed by participants from the Sculpture Department.
