I got the barrel at auction thinking I could make a grill or smoker out of it but I decided to use for a sculpture instead. My sculptures aren’t meant to make any profound statements or change the world. I strive for fun and clever. If you can smile and forget your troubles, if only for the moment, I will consider the sculpture a success.
Barrel of Monkeys was a part of Sculpture Walk Springfield’s third collection. It was placed outside of Coffee Ethic on South St. in Springfield, MO from April 2018 to March 2019.
