Four sculptures welcome students and visitors to the Kankakee Community College’s Harold and Jean Miner South Extension Center in Watseka.
Inspired by Ted Hughes' Crow poems, “Crow Series” was created in stainless steel by local sculptor Ed McCullough. The sculptures were dedicated Sept. 11, 2014.
About the sculptor
McCullough’s indoor and outdoor sculptures are displayed throughout the country, with two outdoor sculptures close to home – “Meridian IX” installed in 2011 at Kankakee Community College’s Riverfront Campus and “Meridian IV,” installed in 2000, in Conrad Park in Momence.
McCullough served in the U.S. Navy from 1955-1959. Following his service he earned both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in art from Illinois State University in Normal. He taught art at colleges and universities, including Columbia College in Chicago and Kankakee Community College. McCullough works from his studio in Cissna Park, IL, where he lives with his wife Gale.
