‘Ozark Dragon’ (Fireplace Sculpture)

By Chris Morrey

ozark dragon

Chris is a Canadian sculptor who lived and worked all over North America before making his home in Columbia, Missouri. He has been deeply influenced by ancient Chinese and Japanese arts, as well as European ornamental styles. Ozark Dragon combines these influences with an aerial view of Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks to create a burnished steel dragon for the Broadway Hotel.


‘Flutter’ (Capen Room)

By Dawson Morgan


This work consists of sculptural stoneware pieces that incorporate shadow as a design component. Jennifer Perlow created the visual concept with Morgan’s studio work in mind. Dawson added, “As an artist, I was inspired by the project right from the start. Jennifer Perlow’s appreciation for the elegant shapes and shadow in my work served as a muse throughout the process. It is a joint project from my perspective, completely Jennifer’s idea that I played out three dimensionally.”


‘Home of Suns’ (Elevator Bay)

By Bob Hartzell

After starting graduate school at Columbia College Chicago’s Center for Book and Paper Arts, he was lured to the University of Missouri to study fibers with Jo Stealey and the opportunity to run the silkscreen program at Mizzou. While completing the work for his MFA, he volunteered for many local arts organizations, and remains very active in the art community.
