Meet the Auction Artist: Pat Slimmer

From public art to cars, Pat Slimmer is a true renaissance man!

In addition to being a master mechanic, Pat Slimmer is the man behind the infamous “Flying Saucer” Art Car. This signature vehicle in the Art Tougeau parade has traveled to many exhibitions and has even been featured in several books. Pat’s public art has been exhibited in Topeka’s NOTO Arts District and the Downtown Lawrence Sculpture Exhibition. You can see one of his large-scale sculptures in front of the Lawrence Carnegie Building.

Pat has created metal sculptures for the annual Scarecrow Auction and his metal wreaths are always a favorite part of the Lawrence Festival of Trees.

Pat Slimmer’s beautiful sculpture, Perennial, is now up for bid in the 2018 Benefit Art Auction! Click here to bid online or stop by the galleries to see it today.
