National Sculptors' Guild sculptures to lead way to the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library
Master Plan Design by National Sculptors' Guild Executive Director John Kinkade
John Kinkade began working on this project (our first with the City of Little Rock, Arkansas) in 2003, the selected design and artwork was actualized, placed and dedicated November, 2004. Since then*, we have placed over 100 public artworks in Little Rock *12/2015.
Below are excerpts from Kinkade's preliminary proposal. Kinkade chose to pull key elements from President Clinton’s speech “Bridge to the 21st Century” to organize the progression to the library. He proposed numerous individual concepts by 14 national sculptors reflecting each theme. The Little Rock committee chose the six final artworks. The artwork speaks to Arkansas’ quality of life and thematic subject matter derived from President Clinton’s speech “Bridge to the 21st Century”.

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.
