The National Sculptors' Guild is shipping off another of Affiliate Jack Hill's "On a Roll", this time the a'peeling sculpture is headed to Little Rock, Arkansas for their extensive public art collection along the Riverfront Park. We're always happy to work with Little Rock.

NSG Public Art Placement #541
So pleased that three NSG members have had sculptures selected to add to the City of Loveland Art in Public Places' collection at Benson Sculpture Garden this year. One of the best sculpture gardens in the nation is in our backyard and is filled with lots of our artists’ work. And soon, there'll be more! If you haven’t seen it, come visit!
Congratulations to Craig Campbell, Jack Hill and Joe Norman!

These sculptures will be installed in early summer, with a formal dedication during the second weekend in July.

The National Sculptors' Guild has installed Affiliate Jack Hill's "On a Roll" in Downey, California. We're thrilled with this playful public art placement, appropriately placed adjacent to the Hall of Fame Market and Deli. We hope you find it a'peeling'.
This installation is part of a series of Public Art placements that the City has commissioned from the National Sculptors' Guild to enhance Downey Avenue.
Special thanks to NSG Fellow Clay Enoch, Capitol Crane and the City of Downey for the installation help.

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.
