Fred Simon Collection
The sculpture “A Rather Large, Rather Important Animal” was acquired by the Fred Simon Collection and installed in the courtyard of Omaha Steaks in Omaha Nebraska. The sculpture is 14' x 13' x 8' and is painted steel.
It was important to position the sculpture so that it was visually accessible from a number of offices which overlooked the courtyard.
The artist was consulted about what was needed for proper installation and a designer worked with the collectors to insure that it was appropriately located.
This sculpture is a favorite of many of those who work at Omaha Steaks.
