Update 12/07/2017: Tim Cherry has finished Roundbottomus Hippopotamus in a beautiful Pat Kipper patina. The first in the edition was commissioned through the National Sculptors' Guild for the City of Little Rock, Arkansas and will be installed in the spring once the site is ready. The sculpture is designed to be played on and around, placed directly on the ground, bands of different colors of concrete will surround the bronze to give the sense of rings of water. The donor has named her "Annaba" after the modern city built over the ruins of Hippo Regius in Algeria, Africa where their father spent time in the 1940s.

The University of Virginia's Children's Hospital Battle Building Park has added the bronze monument "Rabbit Reach" by National Sculptors' Guild fellow Tim Cherry
NSG placement #491
Update 4/15/18: pics of Rabbit Reach installed
We've just finished installing two more Tim Cherry bronze sculptures at the Arkansas Children's Hospital. Tim's Whole Hog and Bear Ball join over two dozen sculptures by National Sculptors' Guild members Mark Leichliter, Jane DeDecker, Clay Enoch, Herb Mignery, Don Rambadt and more by Tim Cherry.
Our primary goal with the art placements in the outdoor courtyard was to enhance the area with whimsical sculptures inspired by native wildlife. We hope discovering all of the artwork we placed here lifts the spirits of patients and families.

Our NSG sculpture placements in Little Rock like Tim Cherry's "Rabbit Reach" and Jane DeDecker's The Ties that Bind have struck a chord with Melissa Joan Hart during her visit to Arkansas.
Thanks Melissa! We've placed over 30 significant public art pieces in Little Rock since 2004 when we first placed artwork there designed to lead pedestrians from downtown to the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Center; pulling our inspiration from his 1996 Bridge to 21st Century speech we selected artwork that complements the library and surrounding themes and landscape as well as President Clinton's ideals of family, cultural diversity and looking to the future. We've loved placing artwork there ever since; designing the Vogel Schwartz Sculpture Garden and developing River Front Park and the surrounding area with Dean Kumpuris and board of the Sculpture at the River Market and the many great people from the city of Little Rock. If you haven't visited this great community - GO!

The National Sculptors' Guild team just installed Tim Cherry's "Bison Columns" at the Jackson Hole Airport in Wyoming. “BISON COLUMNS” ©2010 Tim Chery and the National Sculptors' Guild, photo: Ren Burke
This sculpture is a large-scale relief featuring a bison, which are native to the area and are an integral part of the ecosystem. The bison is a symbol of the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park as well as the enduring western spirit. "Bison Column" shows a stylized side view of the head and massive shoulders of a buffalo.
The placements will be significant and inviting to the touch, appealing to viewers of all ages. The artwork’s scale will be impressive and eye-catching, while the depth will be low-profile so as not to obstruct the flow of airport patrons as they walk by.

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. click here for a list of our over 500 large-scale placements.
