The Dora Timmerman Interactive Sculpture Project / WSU Foundation
Beech Elementary. Wichita, Kansas
This is a collaborative project with the 5th grade class of Beech to design and build a sculpture for the permanent collection of Beech Elementary.
75 Students design individual works, I then formulate a single design for the commission from the student designs and build the sculpture. The students are the “Artist” and I become the “Fabricator”.
The basic intent of this annual project is for regional sculptors to assist onsite educators of the USD259.
At the end of the day, it is the students that indeed teach ME.
Project underway. Work installed in May.
Below is study sketch of sculpture, formulated from a compilation of drawings from the students.

In studio collaboration between myself and artist Janet Riddel
(Wichita Art Museum Child Education Program).
We are building sculpture as jewelry. Planned designs as well as “freestyle” builds.
Live models (male as well as female) will saunter about to display the works.
“Sunbeam-the Blue Period” (working title).
I have acquired a 1965 Sunbeam Alpine sports car.
It has been stripped to the bare uni-body.
I will cut it up and then reconstruct into a sculpture/ installation.
“Trabant- Back in the US, I mean DDR” (working title).
I have acquired a 1977 Trabant wagon.
The previous owner states,
“It was East Germany’s answer to the people’s car.
They were made in the DDR in Zwickau.
They were never even exported to the
Soviet Union (as far as I know). East Germany, Yugoslavia,
Czechoslovakia and Hungary received these. As far as I know that was it.”
This particular wagon met its (early) demise here in Kansas and
the owner graciously granted permission for me to cut it up for art’s sake.
