About the Artist/Site

Ed Root worked on ranches before moving to KS, then owned his own farm. Garden full of concrete and glass sculpture: human forms, birds, turtles embedded with colored glass and mirror, china, wire and stones. His house and garden are now at the bottom of man-made Lake Wilson. The Ed Root site no longer exists but sculptures were saved by the Kansas Grassroots Art Association and were stored in a building in Baldwin, KS (see first image) constructed by Ray Wilbur. They were moved to a permanent installation in the Kansas Grassroots Art Center, Lucas, KS in 1993.
