Dr. Manhattan’s art collection comes from Kansas City
Watchmen opens tonight at 11:55. I won’t be there, but I’m tempted to go and see what Zach Snyder has done with Alan Moore‘s graphic novel (even if Moore has cursed the film). When I finally see it, I’ll be watching for a couple of sculptures from Kansas City artists.
“They were Googling contemporary sculpture, and they came up with Brent Collins,” Dorrell says. “They were just blown away. They thought it had a modernistic quality to it that would fit the
film — especially when you cast the works in bronze.
“The amazing thing about Brent is he sculpts the wooden patterns by
hand, and the wooden patterns are extremely complex. How he does that
is just beyond me.”
“Some are in his dining room,” Dorrell says. “Some are in his bedroom. Some are in his living room.”
After the jump, a look at Dr. Manhattan’s sculpture collection.
