Country Club Plaza Clock Tower

1992 Miller Nichols Real Estate Developer, J.C. Nichols Company “Our friends and acquaintances are most lavish in their praise of the Clock Tower. It immediately became a landmark for the Plaza and for that matter Kansas City. You played no small part in the success of this Tower. Over the years your craftsmanship will be viewed and enjoyed by millions.”

Bob Jones, Architect

“Carolyn did a wonderful job of working with Miller Nichols and myself on various high profile Plaza projects. One such project was the Clock Tower, consisting of three large tile clock face designs. Carolyn was involved from early concept to final installation. Her creativity and attention to detail were wonderful.”

Eagle Mural “Courtship Flight”

Ray Sandy Sutton, attorney “When I viewed for the first time the mural, I was awestruck with the brilliant creation which Carolyn had taken from concept to finality. She is a great person to work with.”

Donor Wall, KC Free Health Clinic Sheridan Wood, Executive Director

“Carolyn’s work is superb. Her tiles are full of energy and excitement and bring life to a project. We found Carolyn to be a wonderful listener, someone who could listen to ideas and transform them to a finished art project. The finished product reflects the life of the clinic over the last 30 years as we grew from the hippie era to a clinic providing health care in the twenty-first century. We, and our donors, are thrilled with the wall that will continue to grow with us over the years.”

Donor Wall, School of Social Welfare, University of Kansas Ann Weick, Dean

“In designing the colorful mural for the 50th anniversary of the KU School of Social Welfare, Carolyn was able to go beneath our words and capture the spirit of commitment and optimism that motivates our work. She is a gifted tile artist who created a visually powerful image to greet all who enter our lobby area.”

I treasure my beautiful set of six tiles that Carol painted in 1984 of the Country Club Plaza done in blue and white. Also,adore the one of the Northland Fountain(June 21,1983}. One with horse and carriage from the Plaza she painted in 1990 and last, a tile of a Christmas Plaza scene from 1989.
I am blessed to own such a wonderful collection of her beautiful art! Thank's Carol!
