Description
Crying Giant, the 5,700 pound sculpture, sits at the Southeast side of the Kemper Museum. This piece was added to the collection in 2002 and is one of three that were fabricated. The somewhat "local artist", Tom Otterness, from nearby Wichita, Kansas, is internationally known for his public art works. Tom's cartoonish figures depict cultural narratives, and are often suggested of enacting political statements on capitalism. His illustrative sculptures are on display throughout the U.S, Canada...
