These four guys make their home in Lucas. Send your best caption for this photo to win free admission to the Garden of Eden, one of the world’s greatest folk art sites.
Recently refurbished, the Garden of Eden features S.P. Dinsmoor’s concrete creations. He started making them in 1905 and continued until his death in 1933. The Garden of Eden is also his resting place. His mausoleum is part of the facility.
Dinsmoor inspired others to create as well. Local resident Florence Deeble constructed a rock garden around her home, using rocks picked up on her travels, and works representing the places she visited.
Today Deeble’s home is a gallery that exhibits works from recycled materials by artist Mri-Pilar. Lucas is also the home of The World’s Largest Collection of the World’s Smallest Versions of the World’s Largest Things traveling museum, and porcelain artist Eric Abraham’s Flying Pig Studio and Gallery. The Grassroots Art Center has a gallery featuring work of Kansas folk artists.Your photo caption could win you admission to see Dinsmoor’s one-of-a-kind creations in Lucas.
