Additional Information

Omaha artist Ron Parks applies to the creative process the knowledge and experience gained from a 30-year career of inventing, designing, and fabricating in metals. Fusing the fabricated with the natural, each piece invites the viewer to join in by teasing one’s sense of reality. Light strikes angle and veers off; shadow glides along curve; imagination blends with craftsmanship. The Joslyn museum purchased this piece with funds provided by Dr. and Mrs. Stanley Truhlsen.
