Paul Dorrell, art consultant and president of Leopold Gallery, along with his son, flew to Washington DC recently for the installation of six mammoth Whitaker Wind Sculptures at a mixed use development. The tallest was 24 feet. “This was a cool gig, and will be followed by other massive projects at Texas A&M and in California. This reflects well back on Brookside,” says Dorrell, as Whitaker Wind Sculptures are also sold in his Brookside gallery.
