Curious Worlds: The Art & Imagination of David Beck

"Curious Worlds" pulls back the curtain on a fantastically unique artist, David Beck, a master sculptor, carver, and miniature architect who works in a fantastical genre all his own, combining "the meticulous craftsmanship and precision of a mechanical engineer with the sometimes wacky worldview of a Tim Burton."

"Curious Worlds: The Art & Imagination of David Beck" is an intimate portrait of the most accomplished American artist you’ve never heard of.
