There was a section in the show where the artwork took a darker tone.  The artist had worked as an attorney and did these sculptures in his free time. he said he became increasingly trapped by his work and the depression showed up in his work.

The exhibit is being hosted at Kansas City’s Union Station through May 28th Admission is $15.95 for Adults and $12.95 for Children. These are definitely one of a kind recreations. I photographed a lot of the exhibits because I really like his work, but there are over 100 works in the exhibition so there is still much to see on your own.
