Eldred came to Kansas City in 1959 after studying architecture and engineering. A year later he became chairman of the sculpture department at the Kansas City Art Institute, where he taught for more than thirty years. He is known for his large metal installations that use light to explore the simple, beautiful mechanics of the physical world, such as the earth's daily spin on its own axis, and its yearly orbit of the sun. The Museum's work references views of the Grand Canyon.
