This weekend Don, Kathleen, Larry and I traveled to Kansas City, MO for Don's opening of his retrospective show at the Belger Arts Center! It was an absolutely amazing show, so much wonderful work in one room. The opening was a wild success with hundreds of people stopping throughout the evening to see the show and see Don. Don's family Brent (son), Donna (daughter) and Nancy (sister) were all there and our Florida family was able to fly out to see the show and be with us. My parents were able to make it in the day after the show which was really nice to see the both of them. Mat Rude and his wife Aubrey were in attendance for the opening on Friday night which was great to hang out with them again. I even met up with a really great friend Beth Nybeck a metal sculpture who actually lives in Kansas City and is making some jaw dropping work (check her link above). All in all the show was amazing, seeing friends and family was great, and I really enjoyed myself in Kansas City and can not wait to go back!
