Sculpture for the Statehouse

Kathleen Caricof has been commissioned to create a sculpture for the rotunda of the Statehouse Convention Center, which is getting a facelift — new floors, wall coverings, doors, etc. Art Notes has the details, except for some new information. John Kinkade, the director of the National Sculptors Guild in Colorado and the consultant on the commission, said yesterday he invited around 30 artists to submit proposals, including six in Arkansas. None of the Arkansans chose to submit, citing time constraints and the low amount of remuneration — $35,000. (In contrast, Caricof's commission for "Stars and Stripes" in front of War Memorial Stadium was around $500,000, and another $100,000 plus went into landscaping and such. If that sounds like a lot of money, consider that the sculpture was engineered in Finland; Kinkade says a computer program was written there to figure out how to fabricate the steel piece.)

The photo above is Caricof's winning sculpture from the 2009 Sculpture at the River Market exhibit. The work she is doing for the Convention Center is mixed media. She will present the LRCVB a model of the work soon.
