Congratulations to self-described “queenodesign” Kelly Ludwig, who is much in the news lately. She is featured in a splashy story in the March 2009 issue of Spaces magazine. Titled “Inside Out,” the four-page article highlights Kelly’s love of the “colorful, modern folk and outsider art” she collects and uses to cover the walls of her Brookside bungalow in Kansas City.
She fell in love with collecting while serving as the designer for the KCPT-TV road-trip series “Rare Visions,” which showcases folk art and unusual roadside attractions across American byways. The series has also led to her book on Detour Art plus an upcoming update to the first Rare Visions volume.
Next up: “Rare Visions – Detour Art” exhibit featuring a selection from Kelly Ludwig’s collection, March 6 to May 1, 2009, at Belger Arts Center, 2100 Walnut St., Kansas City, Mo., www.belgerartscenter.org.
I first met Kelly about five years ago when she brought me in to work on a writing project for a client of her design firm, Ludwig Design Inc. I was impressed with Kelly, her design work and her dedication to serving clients. Her Web site is lots of fun, too. Visit it at http://www.ludwig-design.com and see for yourself.
