He has been honored with many awards over the years and his works are in many permanent public and private collections. Over the last 62 years Kolleck has produced thousands of paintings and sculptures, and tens-of-thousands of drawings and prints, along with his ongoing 40-acre earth work. He lives in Carthage, Ill.
