About the event

See Bob Mix’s workshop where he creates whimsical machines and creatures in Great Bend, Kansas. Bob has several of his metal sculptures in the Great Bend Zoo and we will tour those also.

We will dine (included) at Prairie Oaks Inn.

A drive to rural Sylvia, Kansas will bring you to Don Brownlees’s 1912 farmhouse surrounded by his creative sculpture garden of stone and metal. Inside the home we'll explore his creativity in wood, plaster, fiber, metal, along with an organ with 5000 decorated pipes filling a room and ceilings in the home. Current owner, Michael Murphy will provide a tour of this one-of-kind site.

You may carpool or drive your own vehicle. Call 785-525-6118, or email with any questions.

Each trip includes exclusive access to sites with Grassroots Art Center director Rosslyn Schultz, and conversations with artists and site caretakers.
