About the artist, Bill Reid: Bill Reid likes to make up words and admits that people find him "goofy." His metal sculptures are fantastical creatures, which may manifest themselves as vehicles, instruments, or as endearing "beasts" as he refers to them. His imaginative animals are full of wonder and whimsy and reflect a childlike approach to envisioning the animal kingdom. He's created his own personal folklore. His work has been featured in programs on PBS and the BBC. Reid has earned a prominent niche in the national sculpture community as well as being a fixture locally in Racine where his family moved when he was a young teen, and where he still lives and works. He went to Kansas City Art Institute and then got a masters degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art.
