St. Louis-based sculptor Tim Curtis creates an outdoor installation and an exhibition for Laumeier's special projects gallery.

Her monumental archetypal personages combine questions of spiritual identity, fragments of myth and legend, and practices of the everyday to address humanity in the broadest sense.
