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.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
