The City of Glendale, Arizona added a couple more sculptures from the National Sculptors' Guild.
Charter member, Gary Alsum's "Frog Legs" and "Picture Books were both added to the city's growing public art collection in 1997.
"Frog Legs" is a bronze sculpture depicting a couple of kids playing the school yard game of Leap Frog, It is full of motion captured in a single moment.
"Picture Books" is appropriately located at the Glendale Public Library (59th Ave and Brown St) as it depicts two young children reading books with their dog. The pages feature illustrations as line drawings. One can sit next to the kids and be part of the artwork in this bronze bench artwork.

JK Designs’ Principal, John Kinkade, founded the National Sculptors’ Guild in 1992 with a handful of sculptors who wished to find thoughtful public applications for their work. Representation has since grown to over 20 contracted sculptors and painters; plus an extended network of 200+ artists that our design team works with on a regular basis to meet each project's unique needs.
