Background:
The original model for the Head was created by Tom Pfannerstill, which then was used to form the fiberglass mold that underlies the Heads.  A total of 41 Heads were are on display, involving 38 artists.  At the very start, the KPA Founation commissioned David Schuster to paint a prototype head, "Duality," that was used to convey the concept. 
View pictures of the project as it evolved.

The Heads were selected through a juried art competition.  More than 130 design submissions were received, and the jury selected 40 to participate in the show.
