NORTH SMITHFIELD – Call it an occupational hazard.
In William Culbertson’s century-old home on Warren Avenue in North Smithfield, you’ll find a complete room dedicated to his collection of Disney paraphernalia, with his favorite characters lined up along shelves, sitting on the television stand, and even painted on the walls.
In the basement, four 3-foot-by-4-foot clay models depict Kermit the Frog and other scenes from Jim Henson’s early work.
Four giant handmade puppets sit upon a piano in the living room, while dozens of Culbertson’s sculptures grace the home’s shelves and ledges.
His back yard, until recently, was filled with Styrofoam and other materials that could come in handy for building a set.
Culbertson has made a lifelong career out of creating and replicating artwork, including both the sculptures and designs that you typically find in parks and town squares, and the more colorful scenes and characters that make up childhood fantasies.
“As a freelancer, you can’t just focus on one area,” Culbertson said. “In order to keep success, keep the phone ringing and keep the money flowing, you have to do several things.”

Kathy Ireland stepped out from behind the lectern. She took the microphone with her. Was this going to be one of those defining moments when years from now people would still say that was “the Ireland at NEIT episode?” What might the woman who appeared in 13 consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues – and who is also an actress, author and chair, CEO and chief designer of Kathy Ireland Worldwide – do?
Was she going to model the cape that moments before had been draped around her neck as she received an honorary doctor of humane letters degree Sunday at New England Institute of Technology’s commencement ceremony at the Rhode Island Convention Center? Might she do something even more daring?
Whatever was going to happen, the news photographers weren’t going to miss it. They trained their telephoto lenses on Ireland. The 1,175 grads and their families and friends craned their necks to see the stage and the screens showing Ireland bigger than life. Ireland had everyone’s attention. She’s good at grabbing attention. She twisted to demonstrate how she would model a swimsuit.
