Day Trip to Urbana-Champaign - Part II [ Krannert Art Museum and Kinkead Pavilion: Outdoor Sculptures]]





Krannert Art Museum and Kinkead Pavilion..
The Museum was designed by architect Ambrose Richardson in a style reminiscent of the late work of  Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. An addition to the Museum was completed in 1988. This addition, the Kinkead Pavilion, was the creation of architect Larry Booth and Associates.

Personal Comment..
And I have to admit, I am very disappointed in its website. I tried many times to find information on outdoor sculptures in the museum campus. Could not find any information on these. Even more disappointing is that I could not find any information on Lorado Taft's works with the museum. And if the information is there, and I could not find it; I would say, that the search should be made more customer friendly.
If anyone has information on these outdoor sculptures, please let me know.
