CITY MUSEUM                           An eclective & interactive grand installation
St Louis, Missouri 1999 - present

Human Kaleidoscope
Giant Slinky   Mosaic Floors

We built it and they came... and keep coming.  I collaborated with Bob Cassilly - just doing whatever we felt like - having a blast - using whatever materials he had around. He had mirrors salvaged from department stores - I took apart a little kaleidoscope and said let's make it big.  My sculpture and glass blowing studio was a museum exhibit where the public could watch, be mesmerized, and make their own art.  The Museum bought me out in 2000.
