Randy Regier proposed to create a public sculpture entitled The Celestial Mechanic “that is resonant with the culture and aesthetic of sky and flight and dreams of space – yet rooted and connected to the earth and to community history and the passage of time. These are very Kansas things to me, and a large part of why I choose to live and work here.” Regier has a BFA in sculpture from Kansas State University and an MFA in studio arts from Maine College of Art. He is represented in numerous museums and private collections nationwide including the Emprise Bank Collection, Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, and the Spencer Museum of Art. Public commissions include Salina Arts Commission, the Wichita Public Library Foundation and most recently Open Spaces, an international sculpture biennial installed in parks and urban spaces throughout Kansas City, Missouri.
