Wright Auctions is listing OXTAIL from the collection of Robert and Ruth Vogele. They purchased this one from the Construct Gallery in Chicago in the late 70s. Although it is small, it looks great.
In other news, there was an inquiry into HIGHLINE just outside the Van Nuys Post Office. Possible renovations to a barren plaza but there is a clean modern quality that is ripe for a little sprucing up. The original design was totally horizontal - the maquette is in the Smithsonian collection - I am glad KIPP decided to go vertical here.

Hunter Museum of Art has a nice image of DUNBAR (1980). Nice to finally see this piece in public even if it is not currently on view.

I just ran across a maquette similar to BULLFINCH and WILD RICE that was auctioned on 18 MAR 2018 and have now added it to the site. Enjoy.

#500 and counting

Thanks to Wright Auction for requesting details about several works they currently have listed. The addition of these new pieces sends us over the 500 mark for the number of recorded works in the KIPP canon.
YUKON has the distinction of receiving the coveted #500.

There are several other 2D pieces that need to be added as well so we will keep recording.

WINK - maquette

The maquette for WINK came up for auction at the Wright Auction House scheduled for 29 SEPT 2016.
Although similar in spirit to the realized version on the University of Pennsylvania campus, the two pieces are quite different.

I did not have this piece recorded but it was included in the 1969 show, Exhibition in Memory of Rene d'Harnoncourt at the American Federation of the Arts in NYC presented by the Institute of International Education.
Rene d'Harnoncourt was the director at the Museum of Modern Art from 1949-1967. He was killed on Long Island during on a walk by a drunk driver while preparing this show with the president of IIE.
BOXTOP was lent to the exhibit by KIPP.
