My sister doesn't often tell me what to do (she knows I probably wouldn't listen). So, when she suggested that I paint "some of that crazy weird architecture around Livingston," I felt compelled to try it.
My son's best friend from early childhood had a significant connection to this building. His mom was the owner, manager, and voice of KPRK for many years. Once, when the river flooded he stayed with us while his mom was on sandbag patrol. Another time, she commissioned me to make little ceramic replicas of the building to give away. KPRK is in our DNA.
It is also a superb example of mid-century radio-station architecture. It is on the Montana historic register, although has not functioned as a radio station for many years.
You have to love this building--A playful tower of the sky.
