Lucas, Kansas is the home base of The World's Largest Collection of the World's Smallest Versions of the World's Largest Things Traveling Roadside Attraction and Museum. Although it is best enjoyed while on the road, when at home WLCoWSVoWLT can be seen just up the alley behind the Garden Of Eden.
The traveling roadside attraction and museum is the creation of artist Erika Nelson. I first discovered The World's Largest Collection on public television's Rare Visions and Roadside Revelations and was impressed by Erika. It was many years after most of the pictures on this page were taken, that I met Erika in person and I was even more impressed. She is creative, beautiful, and a wonderful promoter of Lucas, Kansas.
One of her newer projects was the World's Largest Souvenir Travel Plate. Erika made it from an old satellite dish and mounted it at the entrance to town on Highway 18 coming from the east.
I look forward to the new ways that Erika Nelson will find to promote Grassroots Art, Kansas and Lucas.
