A Fantastic Donation!

Ms. Carol Schmidt has donated a reproduction concrete Sprite to the Iannelli Studios Heritage Center.  The original Sprite from which it was cast was designed by Alfonso Iannelli for the Midway Gardens designed by Frank L. Wright.  Ms. Schmidt purchased it from Scott Elliott of the Kelmscott Gallery in 1998.  Scott had this sculpture reproduced from an original Sprite.  She is donating this Sprite so that people visiting the Iannelli Studios Heritage Center can enjoy seeing a full size, three dimensional likeness of the original design by Alfonso Iannelli and appreciate the greatness of his talent.

As a sidenote, Mr. Mike Grucza, who is restoring our Immaculata Madonna sculpture, also restored the original sprite sculpture from which this cast was made. He told us that there were only 4 or 5 of these sprites cast.

We feel very fortunate to have received the donation of this sprite from Ms. Schmidt.

The Kalo Foundation thanks you very, very much for this fantastic piece of history.
