Bio

Mr. Bennett is the Owner and Director of Tall Grass

Museum Services located in Lawrence, Kansas, USA. Tall Grass is a design and fabrication firm that focuses on art related subjects, such as murals, sculpture, and dioramas. Originally from Kansas, Randall and his wife Helen, spent many years moving around the USA, gaining experience in a wide range of design and art related activities

Mr. Bennett earned his Bachelor of Architecture Degree from Kansas State University in 1982. He worked in the architectural profession for a number of years before returning to art school at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit. After several years of intense study in industrial design, illustration, sculpture, he took a job working in the museum exhibit fabrication industry and has stayed with it continuously.

Randall has been involved with about 75 museums that contain something of his artwork: murals, dioramas, sculpture, artifact reproductions, graphics, photography, illustrations, exhibit text writing, artifact mounts and much more. Before starting his own business, Mr. Bennett worked as lead artist and team leader on a number of jobs which brought recognition and awards. He was lead artistic fabricator for the 1998 NAI Best Interpretive Exhibit and lead artist, team leader for the 2006 NAI Best Interior Exhibit at Anza Borrego Desert State Park visitor center.

Besides working on museum related jobs, Randall keeps busy working diligently on his personal artwork in his adjacent studio. He regularly outputs easel paintings that have been regarded as of the highest quality. Much more may be found of Mr. Bennett’s work by reviewing his websites: www.tallgrassmuseumservices.com
