"Dream Dragon The Breakout" Junction of Highways 14 & 18
The highways of Lincoln County, Kansas are the home of the Open Range Zoo, which features nearly 30 unusual welded metal creatures. Artist Jim Dickerman created these "Creature Creations" to promote his Soaring Heart Gallery art studio near Beverly, Kansas in Lincoln County. I had some difficulty in locating the art gallery, but fortunately his family saw this page and contacted me. The larger creatures are made from farm equipment and many of them move with the wind.
Many of Jim's Creatures are along Highway 18, near the east end of Lincoln County. A listing of most of these creatures is at the bottom of this page.
