The Wall Street Journal ran a story today talking about Kansas.
According to the online-version of the article, this story ran today on the front page of the WSJ.
The article was titled, “These Unknown Sculptors Are Outstanding in Their Fields in Kansas: Odd Art Collections Crop Up Along Midwest Highways; Mr. Liggett’s Ladies,” and one of the people the reporter talked to was someone I had personally met, which is pretty cool.
M.T. Liggett, of Mullinville, Kan., was interviewed for the story. In fact, his portion was the feature’s lead. He’s an interesting fellow, and if you want to learn more about him, I suggest checking out the Greensburg Rebirth project’s coverage of him, especially this video:
The article also talks about other Kansas artists who, like Liggett, use scrap metal and a blow torch to create magnificent pieces of art.
I would mention the others, but I don’t know them like I know Liggett.
Really, this post has little importance. I just came across this article and thought it was pretty cool that Kansas was making headlines in the leading newspaper of financial news. I had to share it.
Besides, it was either write about this or begin to write a lengthy, First Amendment post, which I really want to write but simply don’t have time to write today due to preparations for basketball games.
Don’t worry, though, I will try to post it this week. It is important to me, so I will write it.
Until then, I hope you enjoy the WSJ article I am sharing with you today. I know I did.
