Artists Helping the Homeless donated this artwork to the City of Parkville in 2010 acknowledging that Twain once used a town named Parkville in one of his novels.  In this sculpture, Twain seems to be beckoning you to sit down and listen to him tell a story.  It can be found in Pocket Park in downtown Parkville.


Artists Helping the Homeless (AHH) was created by Kar Woo, a Kansas City businessman and artist, to help fund a program to feed the homeless through art events and sales.  A receptacle for donations to AHH sits near the sculpture.
