Unlike any other painter; he paints on spheres which, when completed, are known as Termespheres. Each sphere is a revolving three-dimensional space/time exploration of an entirely closed universe.

Museums / Galleries:
http://monet.unk.edu/mona/ Enjoy . . . the art of Nebraska! Like no other museum, MONA, home of the state’s official art collection, focuses on the art of Nebraska and Nebraska artists.
See . . . art representing the work of artist-explorers like George Catlin; early Nebraskans Robert Henri and J. Laurie Wallace; modern era artists Grant Reynard and John Falter, and artists of today. MONA also displays a collection of works by John James Audubon focusing on indigenous Nebraska wildlife. The permanent collection contains over 5,000 works by artists of regional, national, and international importance. MONA is housed in a 1911 Renaissance revival building listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Explore . . . all eleven galleries and you’ll see Nebraska in a whole new way! Visitors can also relax and stroll outside through the Cliff Hillegass Sculpture Garden, browse through the Museum Shop for one-of-a-kind gifts, and visit our Hitchcock Education Gallery.
http://www.sheldonartgallery.org/ The Sheldon has one of the most important collections of American art in the U.S. Our permanent collection has more than 12,000 objects and includes works by Edward Hopper, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Mary Cassatt and Georgia O'Keeffe.
